Part of the book:
The first month, when the gas, electricity and telephone bills came, he forced me to go to the office and make a list of people who owed him.
For example, I told him that a bookstore in London owed $ seventeen.
Seventeen dollars! Call them now and tell them to send me the money immediately.
I told him that calling London cost more than seventeen dollars, but it did not matter to him at all, he said that the principles of work were more important to him.
Call them before the tea goes down their throats.
I picked up the phone and pretended to be dialing.
It was impossible for me to return with a full hand, even if I wanted my own personal request, it was not possible for an Englishman to give money to anyone so easily.
I held the phone to my ear and looked at the regular gardens and houses of Valencia’s neighbors.
Servants in uniform, silver tea service entered the rooms by hand.
Men and women were sitting on chairs, staring at the walls of their houses without sunglasses.
What worried me was that I belonged to the Valencia House, and of all the houses in New York, I was here, next to the Countess barefoot.
I said London would not answer. I think today is an official holiday in the UK.
So call that bookstore in Michigan, which owes us twelve dollars and fifty cents.
Excerpts from the book I will finally have a nice day (text pleasure)
We are told every day that we are living in the best country in the world; It is always stated as an undeniable fact … America is the best country in the world.
You grow up with this belief, and when one day you realize that other countries have nationalist slogans for themselves, and none of them is “We are the second!”, You are terrified.
The last time a successful educator proposed to Amy, he stepped a little and said, “Thank you very much, but I’m not in white now.
For me, the most terrible obstacle in learning French is that every noun has a gender, and this gender affects the pronoun and the adjective.
Because the hen is female and lays eggs, she is male.
But the word masculinity is feminine. Because the French grammar so dictates, hermaphrodite is masculine and infertile is feminine.
I tried for months to discover its hidden secret, but I finally realized that reason and logic can not help me at all.
Hysteria, psychosis, torture, depression: I was told that anything unpleasant was probably female.
I was a little hopeful, but this theory also perished with masculine words like crime, toothache, and skating.
