Paikoillanne, valmiit, nyt! (vähän erilainen ylioppilastarina)

Minä olin niin aikuinen, etten katsonut mitenkään tarpeelliseksi viettää jotain valmistujaisia. Olihan valmistumiseni sentään venynyt vuodella, koska olin päättänyt toteuttaa lapsuudenhaaveeni ja mennä opiskelemaan merenkulkuoppilaitokseen ja tietenkin seilata koko maailman läpi.

 

Maailma on täynnä yllätyksiä. Kuten esimerkiksi se, ettei värisokeasta tule merikapteenia.

Joten kun päädyin takaisin lukionpenkille – elämäni oli lähinnä ohi. Ja jotenkin se oli noloa valmistua yhtä aikaa pikkusiskon kanssa. Näin siis pohdin 18-vuotiaana. Voi, kun olisin tiennyt, kuinka monta mutkaa ja matkaa elämällä on vielä tarjota.

 

LAHJATOIVEET – YKSI MAAILMAN VAIKEIN KYSYMYS

 

Niin antajalle kuin saajallekin. Mitä sinä haluat lahjaksi? Se on se vaikein kysymys. Villasukat, pipot ja kaulaliinat ovat aina olleet ykköstoiveitani, mutta kesän kynnyksellä ne tuntuivat turhan lämpöisiltä, muita vaatteita on kenenkään turha mennä minulle ostamaan.

 

Ei, en halua maailman rauhaa. Olen siihen liian itsekäs ja realisti. Kaiken tavara paljouden keskellä tuntuu niin typerältä ja naurettavalta teeskennellä iloista ja näyttää otetulta, kun saa lahjaksi jonkun turhan härpäkkeen tai vaasin, joka on pakko muistaa nostaa esiin, kun antaja saapuu kylään.

 

ELÄMYKSIÄ, KIITOS!

 

Siksipä olen maailman onnellisin, kun saan lahjaksi elämyksiä ja yhteistä aikaa. Varsinkin sellaisia joita voin jakaa lahjan antajan kanssa. Suurena wannabe-kulinaristina ruokalahjat ja –elämykset/kokemukset eivät voi mennä kohdallani pieleen.

 

Olen aina ollut myös ahne kokemuksille ja seikkailuille. Ja vaikken itseäni varsinaiseksi huimapääksi saatikka extremelajien suurkuluttajasi laskekaan, olen vahvasti sitä mieltä, että kaikkea on pakko kokeilla, jotta tietää mistä puhuu. Ja on sitten oikeutettu jopa tuomitsemaan lajin.

 

Jos joku, esimerkiksi mutsi, lukee tätä ja on pohtinut, mitä minulle lahjaksi, tässä muutama vaihtoehto, joiden kanssa ei voi mennä metsään: lentäminen pienlentokoneella, kaikki mikä liittyy suklaaseen tai veteen.

 

Jos sinulla heräsi pieni kipinä elämyksiä kohtaan, käy katsastamassa valmistujaislahjat.

I hurried into the local department store to grab1 some last minute Chirsmas gifts. I looked at all the people and grumbled2 Exampdfview to myself. I would be in here forever DNA Center Assurance and I just had so much to DNA Center Assurance do. Chirsmas was beginning to become such a drag. I DNA Center Assurance kinda wished that Exampdfview I could just sleep 1K0-001 dumps through Chirsmas. But I hurried the Cisco 3650 Switch best I could through all the Examguideview people to the toy department. Once Cisco 3650 Switch again I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the 1K0-001 dumps prices of all these toys, and wondered if the grandkids Exampdfview would even play whit4 them. I found myself 1K0-001 dumps in the doll aisle5. Out of the corner Examdumpsview of my eye I saw a little Cisco 3650 Switch boy about 5 holding a lovely doll.He kept touching6 Examdumpsview her Exampdfview hair and he held Examguideview Examdumpsview her so gently. Cisco 3650 Switch I could not seem to help myself. I just kept loking Examdumpsview over at the little boy and wondered Examdumpsview who the doll was for. I watched him turn to a woman and he called his aunt by name and said, ”Are you sure I don’t have enough money?” She replied a bit impatiently, ”You Examdumpsview know Examguideview that you don’t have enough money for it.” The aunt told the little boy not to go anywhere that she had to go and get DNA Center Assurance some other things and would be back in a few minutes. And then she 1K0-001 dumps left the aisle. The boy continued to hold the doll. DNA Center Assurance Examguideview After DNA Center Assurance a bit I asked the Examdumpsview Examdumpsview boy who the doll was for. Exampdfview He said, ”It is the Cisco 3650 Switch doll my sister wanted 1K0-001 dumps Cisco 3650 Switch so badly for 1K0-001 dumps Chirsmas. She just DNA Center Assurance knew that Santa would bring 1K0-001 dumps it. Exampdfview ”I told him that maybe Santa was going to bring it . He said, ”No, Santa can’t go where my sister is…. I have to give the doll to my Mama to take to her. ”I asked him where his siter was. He looked at me with Cisco 3650 Switch Cisco 3650 Switch the saddest Exampdfview eyes and said, ”She was gone to be with Jesus.

My Daddy says that Mamma is going to have to go be with her.” My heart nearly stopped beating. Then the boy looked at me again Exampdfview and said, Examdumpsview ”I told my Daddy to tell my Mama DNA Center Assurance not to go yet. I told him to 1K0-001 dumps tell her to wait till I got back from the store.” Then he asked me if i wanted to see his picture. I told him I’d love to. He pulled out some picture he’d had Examdumpsview Examdumpsview taken 1K0-001 dumps at the front of the store. He said, ”I want my Mama to take this with her DNA Center Assurance Examguideview so Examguideview the dosen’t ever forget me. I love Examguideview my Mama so very much and I wish she DNA Center Assurance dind not have 1K0-001 dumps to leave me.But Daddy says she will need to be with my sister.” I saw that the Cisco 3650 Switch little boy had lowered his head and had 1K0-001 dumps grown so Examguideview qiuet. While he was not looking I reached into my purse and pilled out Exampdfview a handful of bills. I asked the little boy, ”Shall we count that miney one more time?” He grew excited and said, ”Yes,I Cisco 3650 Switch just DNA Center Assurance DNA Center Assurance know it has to be enough.” So I slipped my money in with his and we began to count it . Of course it was plenty for the doll. He softly said, ”Thank you Jesus for Cisco 3650 Switch giving me enough money.” Then the boy said, ”I just asked Jesus to Examguideview give me Examguideview enough money to buy this doll so Mama can take it DNA Center Assurance with her to give my sister. And he heard my prayer. Exampdfview I wanted Exampdfview to ask him give for enough to buy Cisco 3650 Switch my Mama a white rose, DNA Center Assurance but I didn’t ask him, but he Examdumpsview gave me enough to Exampdfview buy the doll and Exampdfview a rose for my Mama. She loves white rose so 1K0-001 dumps much. ”In a few minutes the aunt came back and I wheeled my cart away. I could not keep from thinking Exampdfview about the Exampdfview little boy as I finished my shoppong in a Examdumpsview ttally different spirit than 1K0-001 dumps Cisco 3650 Switch when I had started. And I kept remembering a story I had seen in the newspaper several days earlier about a drunk driver hitting Examguideview Examguideview a car and killing7 a little girl and the Mother was in serious condition. The family was Cisco 3650 Switch deciding on whether to 1K0-001 dumps Examdumpsview remove 1K0-001 dumps the life support. Now surely this little boy did not Cisco 3650 Switch belong with that story.Two days later I read in Cisco 3650 Switch the paper 1K0-001 dumps where the family had DNA Center Assurance disconnected the life support and the young Exampdfview woman had died. I could not forget the little boy and just kept wondering if the two were somehow connected. Later Examdumpsview that day, I could not help myself and I went out and bought aome white roses and took them to the funeral DNA Center Assurance home where the yough woman Examguideview was .And there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little boy in the Examdumpsview store. I left there in Examguideview tears, thier life changed forever. The Examguideview love that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in Examguideview a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.
