He got that right.
Quico and I have always tried to find the proverbial silver lining in current events. But lately, that’s been hard to find. I blame it on El Niño.
So, bloggerfam, this is a cry for help. We demand an intervention!
Is there any hope? And if so, where do you find it? ‘Cause the light at the end of the tunnel seems to have flickered out with the latest blackout.
I think of my friend Rafa, who years ago told me something that has stuck in my mind: “Este país es una mierda, pero como se goza!“
Maybe he’s right. I should give him a call.
PS.- Quico read the previous version of this post and hated it. He asked me for a re-write, demanding I make it short and funny. Short I can do, but it’s hard to make a post about how depressing everything is … funny!
