What’s your superpower

20170326_144143.jpg

Last night my mom, remembered an episode of my childhood. Out of the blue I asked her  if I would ever be able to read minds… telepathy looked more alluring than wasting time playing with dolls.

My mother, as a very pragmatic woman answered with a plain, short, “No.”

Because she already knew what kind of curious brat I was. And right away a chirping “why” followed.

“It’s simply impossible. What do you need that for anyway?”

Feisty Little Mermaid

“So what on earth were you thinking?”

“What are you talking about? Don’t blame it on me? It’s Andersen’s fault! Not mine!”

“Hmmm…”

“Yeah, he has got a thing for tragic, sad, doomed from the beginning, love stories. If it was for me, I was quite ok down in the ocean. I mean I was a Princess for Poseidon’s sake. Young and beautiful, a mesmerizing voice… And would give that all up for a…”

“A man?”

“A pair of nice legs… do you understand? Besides my shiny tail is amazing. What’s wrong with it? If the Prince wanted me, he should have accepted me for what I was. Period!”

What Would Peter Say…

“If you are going to whine about your shadow again, I will punch you!”

“Can you at least sew it for me? I remember someone did that once, can’t remember who though…”

“Wendy, it was Wendy you moron! You really have a short memory, or is it just an act?”

“Who’s Wendy? What’s with rolling your eyes? It’s creepy.”

Weird Dream

I was tired, actually exhausted and irritated. Another fight with mom about tattoos… What’s the “bound to earth for eternity” supposed to mean and what’s that got to do with getting ink done anyway??

When is this damn bus getting on the way? Can’t wait to get back home. Don’t look at me mom, I am not coming over there. Sitting in the back, suits me just fine, right?


Oh I had fallen asleep, for how long? Mmmm, nice landscape, but still too far from the city.

“Slept well?”- I hear a humming soothing voice next to me.

I turn my head, and I see a familiar face, but I am quite sure, I don’t know her.

“Ugh yeah!”- she is mesmerizing, a hypnotic light on her so dark eyes. I just can’t focus on anything else. I sense her talking and smiling, but can’t make any sense, and I see myself from the outside replying back, there is a background noise during our brief conversation.

Me and my Ego

ego

Me: I was wrong though you know it.

Ego: What are you talking about? You can’t be wrong!

Me: UUUhhhhmmm c’mon let’s face it! It was a bad call. I made a mistake since the beginning. I shouldn’t have gone along with it. It was wrong, it was wrong and yet… I carried on.

Ego: Are you out of your mind? It’s not your fault…

Me: Oh yeah? And whose fault is it then? Whose fault is it? Answer me.

Ego: How should I know? I know it’s not your fault. Besides even if it is your fault, so what? Are you going to tell everyone that your decision was wrong? Do you even realize what that means? It means that you don’t know what you are doing. It means you are incompetent and useless. Then your word won’t count more than nothing. Everything you have worked for, your reputation, your credibility, the way people look at you, their trust, their faith in you as a leader everything thrown away. Is that what you want?

Me: Of course not. But it’s pretty obvious that I failed and everybody can see that. So as a leader, should take responsibility. That’s what a leader does, I am the one accountable for what happened. Facing my mistake and then take action to amend it. I think people will respect me even more, besides I am human as everyone else. I made an honest mistake trying to make things better, although it turned out the complete opposite. It was a miscalculation which brought this. If I had stopped in time maybe we wouldn’t having this conversation.

Ego: Oh my, oh my! You, freaking idiot, are you blind or what? Yes, human beings can make mistakes, a simple consultant makes mistakes, a simple employee makes mistakes and you give your support and assistance. You on the other hand, NOOO! You are not supposed to make any, that’s why you call the shots, you can’t be wrong, otherwise you get replaced. You get it? The understanding crowd of people, including a directing board or boss, happens only in the movies. There is no twinkle with awe, twinkle with roar maybe! Back to reality, please!

Me: ….So what do we do…?

Ego: Oh finally! Now you are being reasonable. Let’s see…

Italian ChaT – IV

 

wp-1469791703100.jpg

No need to rush, Marsia takes the fashionably late concept to a complete superior level. So I can roam on my own for a while, enjoying wind‘s futile attempts to block my steps.

So born on 1935 huh… this means she’s like 80 years old… and she looks so young… I didn’t get it, so her parents died soon after Alessio left? And the fire she was talking about? She lost the journals, now that’s a pity, I would have loved to take a look at them and take some notes… Notes… oooohhhhh how troublesome, the editorial, I don’t know where to start.

Ok, so it means that I will work on it, while waiting for Marsia… if only I could actually concentrate…

TESOROOOOOOO ECCOMI FINALMENTE!” Marsia exclaims, and all heads turned in our direction. Perfect, just perfect.

Italian ChaT Part II

Hello dear reader, what you are about to read is the second part of the new story “Italian chaT”. So far, there is no considerable relation to part I, however if you want to sort out the story and the events, I suggest you to read it that one first, before moving on the second part.

Thanks and enjoy 🙂

————————————————————————

“Let’s take a sit here in the garden. It’s so refreshing, the nice soft breeze in the morning.”

I was drinking my coffee and thinking that I had to catch up with Marsia later. Time just flies when we are together, I really love the girl, but she just can’t stop talking about boys and their fancy cars, the clubs, the clothes, the ridiculous diets….Hhuuhhh… Models…

“So what do you do?”

“I am a writer.” Now that is quite laconic for being a writer. “Yeah I write… I try to…” Why does it feel even more awkward?

She keeps staring at me. “And what would you like to write about?”

I reply like an automatic answering machine: “I write about new fashion trends and combo tips or small category fashion events…” I didn’t like the sound of what I was saying but it was too late now.

Capisco, well figures” she said slurping her coffee, which triggered my curiosity

( “I get it” literal meaning is “understand”)

“Figures, what?”

“Oh gioia, it’s pretty obvious you don’t like your job, nor the people you work with, I got that from earlier. Since you said, you are a writer, I asked what would you like to write about…” Continue reading Italian ChaT Part II

Italian ChaT

I went downstairs, storming, as I wanted to be out and about as soon as possible.

There she was:

Oh Buongiorno! Dormito bene?” (Oh good morning! Slept well?)

I stopped. “There she is, the old lady, again.”

Buongiorno!“I replied reluctantly. “Why do I feel uncomfortable? Is it her mesmerizing blue eyes? She looks wise and dangerously smart. That smart that makes you feel like your soul is open and ready for her to read.”

Svegliata presto, giovane signorina! E anche di fretta. Gradisce un caffé?
