Sex, Chocolate and Rock and Roll
There’s a band where I live called Big Beatles. They sing all sort of Beatles songs. It started as nothing meaningful that along the years turned into business. Recently, they have gone to London. Right, the game is to hide Beatle’s songs titles on the blogs…I’ll do that right now. Just watch the space.
Earlier I was at the roof reading the messages my son’s classmates had written to him. Most of them were pretty much the same saying he’s a good student, a good friend, the best friend of some, nice, polite, funny, intelligent... One of them, though, impressed me. It had a drawing of a heart and says:
I have a strong feeling for you because you are a special friend.
Speaking of a 9 year old boy, suddenly I felt a mix of surprise, worry and proud. It also reminded me Satya’s writings. :-)
I always wait the right moment when he gives me space to talk with him about his day, his feelings,etc.
One day he told me the girl had given him a plastic bracelet. I thought it wasn’t anything significant at all. It’s been a trend between youth here. It’s peculiar the codes associated with the bracelet’s colours. One means he/she wants a kiss, other means a hug and so on... It might be disorienting for some parents.
I just keep my eye on him but I trust the education he’s being given. I always teach him how to respect the girls and how to understand their feelings. I think that if you can see someone’s innerself rather than only the outerself, you’ll be always a great human being. Love demands respect and responsability. Definitely, it isn’t what we see on movies and jokes. If someone wants to say a bad word to another person, he will probably say a word related to sex. Sex has been always linked to violence and aggressiveness. People should see it as something very special and beautiful.
I was prepared to talk about these things by the age of 12 or 13 but the necessity came earlier. I’ve already tried to explain about sex some time ago. It was kind of a disaster I think. By the time he was shocked at my biological explanations about conception and conceiving a child. Well, the important thing is that he is very conscious of the way unacceptable attitudes towards other human beings can affect their lives forever.
Changing completely the subject. Christmas is just around the corner. It’s incredible the way it shakes people. My workmates are more gentle with each other. We will have a lunch all together. Everyone will be responsible for one dish. We aren’t keen on sugary foods in my family however the mine will be American Ice cream. I’ll give you the recipe. It’s a delicious mixture of chocolate and cream if you like. Try it if you don’t mind to eat a high calorie dessert sometimes.
American Ice cream
1 can of condensed milk
4 eggs yolks
1 can of milk
Heat and mix all the ingredients until it gets creamy
4 spoons of sugar
4 spoons of chocolate powder
1 spoon of maize flour
2 glasses of milk
Heat and mix until they get creamy
The whites of 4 eggs
6 spoons of sugar
1 can of thick milk cream
Beat the whites until it looks like snow
Add sugar and the milk cream.
Put layer by layer in a bowl. Keep it in low temperature and don’t hate me if you get some extra weight. I would look down in the mouth.
I wish all the best to you and my belated congratulations on your birthday if you had already celebrated it and if you are far from home…Happy Xmas from the bottom of my heart.
Good night moon see you soon.
