la pelea / the fight








dad: "what are you watching, Mafalda?"
mafalda: "the fight."
dad: "but... it's a soap opera! what fight are you talking about?"
mafalda: "the writer's fight. it's fascinating seeing the writer's struggle to scape the clutches of intelligence."

I often feel like that when watching TV...like oprah doing an interview.

Yet, we watch...we watch.

nadia, i also used to have similar thoughts when watching tv, then from fascinating those struggles just turned into so predictable ones. so now i am experiencing a tv-free time, a nice one :)

joice said...

Saliel said...

Joice, at last a post that I can read! (I appreciate your catering sometimes to us linguistically challenged readers.)

Breaking news! The writers have won the fight. Intelligence has unconditionally surrendered. The masses are rejoicing in the streets.
