A tale of two cities

City 1

În vara lui 1999, pe linia lui 35 –eu si cu de'alde Pătru.El le reparase unora computerul – o favoare pentru prietenul unui prieten – şi acum trebuia să le returneze oamenilor placa de memorie la care meşterise.

Și uite aşa am ajuns noi ȋn Giuleşti – zona cu blocuri, nu aia de case. Dupa ce le remonteza computerul, oamenii ȋl ȋntreabă pe de'alde Pătru: "Cât ȋți datorăm?" El :"Nimic". Aşa că ne-au dat şi ei ce aveau prin bucătărie: nişte piersici. Acum nu ȋmi mai aduc aminte de ce nu le-am mâncat ȋn apartament ci ȋn fața blocului, fapt e că ne-am trezit pe refugiu ținȋnd strâns ȋn pumn sâmburi de piersică. Stingheri.

Vi-a-vis pe trotuar era un coş de gunoi. Singurul din toată zona de altfel. Și cum tramvaiul ȋntârzia, am trecut strada şi am aruncat sâmburii ȋn coş. Eu dau să mă ȋntorc când ȋl aud, domol aşa cum vorbea el:

"Hai să ne facem că ne uităm ȋn vitrine ... "

city 2.

Nothing really happens. People are bound to their TVs today -go, steeeelers! (27-23, they did it ...)

Well there are things that happen.But today that nothing is quite a thing if you are into American Football. Not only that the local team would be the only team to win it six times, but the competitor is the underdog of the championship so there are good winning chances. Or, if they do not win...the sadness is going to be thrice as big.thus a lot of other stuff got suspended...

I can not afford NYC

Have you guessed me yet? I'm the slime oozin' out. From your TV set

That’s an interesting statement but I’m afraid that Zappa referred to characters like such as some politicians than to the Super Bowl. I imagine it had been an event before the TV set and I think anyone from Pittsburgh whom could get his/her hands on plane/game tickets would rather see the event life than on TV. Even I –not because I’m a big fan but because such live experience is priceless.

And there was an Aussie playing too. He was kicking the ball for the red team. But they lost. I hope it wasn't his fault.

It was not his fault :)
