Conversations with a Polish boy, part 3

Monday, March 21, 2011




[setting: driver around the apartment building, seen above....thanks google street view!]
me: why are there, like, 10 parking spaces for an entire apartment building??? we have been driving around foreverrrrrrrrrrrr.
him: see, that's the funny thing about communists, jenni. when they were designing the blocs, they didn't really care who had a parking spot and who didn't.

[disclaimer -- piotr used to live in england a couple of years ago....]
me: how long did you live in england?
him: 3 months.
me: is that how you learned to speak english so well?
him: yeah, i'd say it for sure got kinda better.
me: .....clearly.

[while listening to my iPod in the car]
him: you know what i don't get about kanye?
me: how he can be the most ego-driven human being on the planet?
him: no, why he says ''L.A. Lakers!'' every ten seconds of his songs.
me: ....i don't think he says ''L.A. Lakers!'' in a single one of his songs, piotr.
him: yes, he does. let me play it for you.
(30 seconds later)
me: piotr, he's not saying ''L.A. Lakers!'', he's saying ''L.A. Leakers!''. and that's not him saying it, either. that's a corrupt file which you obviously downloaded illegally. people leak songs online and then splice their name in there to promote themselves.
piotr: what?? who would share a corrupt file? i wonder who i downloaded it from....
me: .…most likely from the L.A. Leakers.

[and, lastly, the following conversation played out over text messaging...]
him: hey. i just wanted to tell you i really, really miss you today.
me: oh really?
him: kinda.

conversations part 2 and 1, here.

So funny! I read the first one to my (Polish) dad just now and he said something along the lines of "in those times, no one had cars". Such a different world from what we're used to. We can never find a parking spot when we're going to see my grandparents!

That last one made me laugh out loud. I love these oh so much!

Jan said...
