La humillante historia del pequeño cabrón en DC

Washington, DC

 

Hace un frío de cojones en Washington, DC. Pero de cojones. He saltado del autobús, me he abrochado el macuto y he atravesado Union Station, conteniéndome para no comprar una porción de pizza a precio de titanio. Me rugía el estómago y no me importaba comer fuera, algo barato pero ya cocinado. Me di prisa por llegar al metro (un metro limpio y espacioso, el mejor que he visto hasta ahora aunque igual de caro) y en media hora salía de la parada de Columbia Heights.

 

Según caminaba hacia la casa, oí un ruido detrás de mí. Me giré y vi una piedrecita rodando a pocos metros de mis pies. Seguí mi marcha y a los pocos segundos otra vez, el ruido de una piedra rebotando contra el suelo, girarme y verla ahí, terminando su trayecto. Me empecé a mosquear. Miré a mi alrededor. Nadie. Miré arriba, a las ventanas. Igual el gracioso las tiraba desde ahí - que, ahora que lo pienso, no tiene ningún sentido esa hipótesis. ¿Qué tienen, una cesta de piedras para tirármelas a mí a la cabeza? (...) El caso es que ocurrió un par de veces más y yo ya estaba de muy mala hostia y muy intrigada a partes iguales. Y veo delante de mí a una mujercita rechoncha sudamericana que me dice en español: "¡Es el niño ése tirando piedrecitas!", señalando a la acera opuesta. Y entre los coches distingo a un chavalín de no más de 10 años, negro y de ojos inocentes, subido a un patinente.

 

"¡Deja ya de tirar piedras, hombre!", le grita la mujer en español. El niño pone cara rara. "I don't understand you!", le responde. Tampoco hay que ser un genio. "Don't throw stones at me!", le grito yo. Él se pone a gesticular como diciendo que él no ha sido, yo le doy las gracias a la señora y sigo. Pero vuelve a ocurrir, y ya lo que hago es cambiarme de acera, a ver si se atreve a tirármelas a la cara. Cruzo y le miro unos segundos a los ojos, pero él se gira y da unos golpecitos a una ventana, dirigiéndose después a la puerta contigua. Yo inmediatamente huyo, no sea que salga su primo de Zumosol y me parta la cara.

 

Ha sido una bonita bienvenida a la ciudad.

    I think the admin of this site is truly working hard in favor of his site, for the reason that here every data is quality based data.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being stolen? I'd definitely appreciate it.

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

    Currently it appears like Drupal is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I think what you said was actually very logical. However, consider this, what if you added a little information? I ain't suggesting your content isn't good, however suppose you added something that grabbed folk's attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda plain. You should glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they create post headlines to get people to open the links. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab people excited about what you've written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
