“She had fallen asleep without putting out the candle and had awakened surrounded by flames… Since then the grandmother carried her from town to town, putting her to bed for twenty cents in order to make value of the burned house.
According to the girl’s calculations, she still had ten years of seventy men per night …. He felt the irresistible need to love her and protect her. At dawn, worn out by insomnia and fever, he made the calm decision to marry her in order to free her from the despotism of her grandmother and to enjoy all the nights of satisfaction that she would give the seventy men. But at 10 o’clock in the morning, the girl had left town…”—from “100 Years of Solitude” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Hey Wolf, merry christmas and a successful, peaceful, happy new year 2012. How you´ve celebrate your holidays ? Regards from Berlin !! Cheers !! ;)
Hi … thank you very much and the very same to you. I don’t typically celebrate anything, including birthdays or anniversaries (it means I don’t go out of my way to do something special just because of date/calendar)… but if close friends are having a party for any reasons, I might join them once in a while and spend some quality time with them … I try to celebrate everyday by cooking good food & working hard though ;)
“I will remind you of today, two decades down the road … when you are tired & old or happy and content…when you are depressed, excited, lonely or in love… you better make today (and everyday) worth being reminded of ….”—me, myself & Wolf189
“If one person tells you that your feet are your best feature, that means, he is a pervert … if three random people tell you the same thing, that means you are ugly.”—me, myself and Wolf189 …(& all of us are wondering if this is funny…)
