Ride to God and corruption Here does not

26 Mar

As promised (post), I bought Ricardo Araújo Pereira’s book, the Portuguese that is making a success, now with the Reactionary with two c´s, I jumped and went straight to two stories of the index: When God got in my car (page 76) and Corruption does not enter here (page 31).

I do not like transverse readings, but Ricardo Araújo’s book is a series of short stories that could fit well into a blog, but he would not make any money with it, I’m immitating him who makes irony and joke with everything, but with a lot of creativity .

These two tales drew my attention because of the proximity to Brazil, the first account that they were in a traffic jam and saw God waving for almost crowded taxis (it must be the youngest) and asked the parents who were not “believers” to ride to God.

For a young supporter of Benfica soccer, God was Eusebius and the tale goes around, talking about the emotion he kept for many years from the father’s car that he later bought and then made his children sit on the bench that had sat “god”, either to say Eusébio, celebrated player of the Portuguese selection of the 60’s, the similarity with Brazil dispenses comments (Pelé and Neymar are Gods).

The second tale, as I read in this order, tells of a corruption case that involved Germany, explaining that the executive of this case was punished in Germany, although the corruptor here refused to go into history, would be the purchase of two submarines, and ironically says that “in Portugal people do not have the decency to participate in the dance of corruption”, and again the parallel with Brazil is evident, even in the case of “German effectiveness”, I thought that only Brazil thought of the 7 x 1 lost for Germany, there is the Portuguese version of this.

I do not know how much more we inherit from them, but that there is a paternal resemblance, no doubt there is, everything is two c’s because I begin to accept paternity, I explained to the Portuguese my rejection, but I should have remained silent and accepted the paternal affection.
