I may ask to my beloved audience -specially the married ones- this important question: If you already have one children, why having another one? I mean, it sounds like a great idea at the beginning: the kids will never be alone and they will take care of each other , right? Well, you’re ignoring one fact: siblings are ALWAYS trying to kill each other -yup, we’re very competitive-. We asked several former mothers and all of them agreed on this:
I bet when you read the title you were thinking: “Damn, Nataly MUST be a party animal!” And the answer is yes, with the right people. Do you remember my cousing Macey and the rum story? We’re back for more. It’s like I finally found my soulmate: she’s cool, she’s not afraid to speak out her mind, we both love volunteering and … we can drink each other under the table. I think we might be vikings on our past life, because we can drink a lot when we are together … and that means we’re DANGEROUS.
Oh dear. The crowdest day of the year is perhaps the city anniversary of my hometown. Don’t get me wrong, I love it … sort of. The streets are crowded and all the cities next to my hometown come to sell their product, which is really nice. You know, peruvians can be really creative with advertisement, let’s check some of them really fast:
A week ago , my sister and I were going to the shopping mall -yup, she’s a shopaholic- when we saw a building burning.
Me: Do you think the firefighters are coming soon?
Sister: I don’t know.
Me: Yup, maybe I should call them. Do you know the number?
Sister: Duh, everybody knows it! It’s 911.
I usually think about sarcasm in life and how people is always surprising you. Maya was an average classmate in highschool that just “enjoyed the moment”, so whenever you asked her what did she want to study, she didn’t have a clear answer. She was the funny girl in the world with sassy comments and always struggling with Math and Science subjects. Well, we ended highschool and now she’s about to graduate … as a DOCTOR.
Yesterday was a nice day as usual. I went to the public swimming pool, paid my fee to enter … but the girl outside forgot to tell me they had swimming practice for club members only. How did I find out? Well, after changing my swimsuit and going to the pool, literally everyone was looking at me.
Let me tell you something: the sassiest person I know on Earth was closer than I imagine. And no, it’s not my dad. I realized – a few years ago- that mom had the sassiest comments on earth. It reminds me a lot of Kitty from That 70’s Show, but my mom has zero patiente.
Alright, I am a simple person when I go to shop. I spot something I really like, I ask for the price and buy it. That’s it. But my mother and my sister … they can take HOURS and still they don’t know what they’re going to buy.
To keep it short, we went to the street market in Lima to do some shopping. My sister had her hand full of bags, and I … bought just a jacket -the rest was “one size suits most (when actually they don’t)”- when I spot this AWESOME sweater on sale.
My cousin Macey is really crazy. She’s the kind of girl who doesn’t give a *** about anything and just enjoy the moment. We had a big argument a couple of years ago, but now we are closer than ever.
After not speaking for each other for nearly two years, we decided it was time to get together again. We had one bottle of rum and black soda and we started to drink. After a couple of minutes we were asking silly and spicy questions, listening to music and so.
