Cum saracii o tara si ma fericii o gramada/ How I got poorer and much, much happier

20 Nov

 English version at the end – slightly different than the Romanian one

Ultimele zile au fost senzatie cum ar zice Mitica. Si nu e (numai) din cauza neamtului care a castigat dreptul sa fie sef peste Romanica incluzand si cardul din care fac eu parte.  Nici pentru ca Romania a batut Danemarca si Mitica s-a dat mare la juma’ de Ferentari ca a stat la VIP si ca vorbeste acum cu “barosane” cu seful FRF-ului.

Motivul principal nu e nici ca m-am intalnit cu niste oameni super buni  incercand sa fac o moderare ( probabil ultima) pentru Aspen Fellows si ca m-am simtit senzational vazand fetele celor de la Antena 3/RTV din noaptea alegerilor la protestele si apoi bucuria de pe strazi.

Motivul e ca m-ati cam saracit. Am pus si eu cu cele mai bune intentii un anunt pe facebook si pe blog ca incerc sa adun incaltaminte de sport si iarna pentru pustii din Ferentari si am zis/scris ca dublez ce primesc. Eu ma asteptam sa strangem de vreo 10, hai 20 de perechi de adidasi. De unde frate !

Am cumparat deja 50 de perechi de adidasi. 15 geci . 25 de incaltari de iarna. Luni sau marti primim inca 30 de perechi de incaltaminte si 50 de cizme de cauciuc.Cumparat 150 de perechi de ciorapi,  majoritatea pentru iarna.  Plus 14 perechi de pantofi folositi dar foarte buni si multe alte haine de iarna care vor tine de cald pustilor iarna asta.

Am saracit un pic dar ma simt “senzatie”. Habar nu am cum as putea sa va multumesc . Va doresc insa sa simtiti ce simt eu acum. Nu se poate mai bine de asa. E lunga lista celor care ar trebui sa va multumesc pentru ca ne ajutati . Voi va stiti. Si eu ma bucur tare mult ca va stiu – nu de alta dar ma faceti pe mine sa fiu mult mai bun.Multumesc. Si la multi ani Vlad – esti o inspiratie pentru mine!

The last days have been “ a sensation” as Mitica will say. And is not only that a German/Romanian became the president of Romania proving that we, Romanians,  are neither extremist nationalists or cretins as some of those who ruled us thought . Not because Romania beat Denmark and Mitica was on the stadium enjoying VIP status and spent time with a very kind and patient president of the Romanian Federation. The main reason is neither that I moderated (probably for the last time) some of the people I like the most from the Aspen Fellows Romania nor that I enjoyed a lot seeing the long faces of some of the worst propagandists ( can’t call them journalists) from Antena 3 and RTV ( TV stations controlled by corrupt moguls supporting the PM) as they saw the result of elections and the explosion of happiness in the streets.

The reason was that you made me poorer. I thought it was a good idea to ask for donations from people and match them in order to get much needed shoes and winter boots for the children I work with in the week-ends. I thought I will get 10 maximum 20 pairs.

So I ended up buying lots of shoes. And jackets. And socks. I am a bit poorer but I feel incredible. I have no idea how could I thank you. The best thing I could wish for you is to feel the same like I feel. There is nothing better. There are too many of you to list in order to thank to all of you that helped now and in the past. But you know who you are. And I know you and that makes me a much better man than I thought I could be. Thanks. And Vlad – happy birthday – you are an inspiration to me.
