THE CHRONICLE OF ONE MONOLOGUE

Here’s a post from FB which I liked. Thought it would be a good idea to translate and repost it in my blog.

Vladislava Bozhenko to АТОшні знайомства:

Мне 7 лет. Ура!!! Наконец-то мы с бабушкой едем на дачу!

14 лет. Достали предки со своими грядками!

Мне 20. Кажется бабушка сошла с ума, целыми днями рвёт траву, ладно бы на грядках, а трава вдоль забора кому помешала?

Мне 25. Дача нужна только для шашлыков.

35 лет. А не посеять ли мне редиски?

45 лет. Весь огород в грядках.

60 лет. Что-то забор травой зарос, нужно прополоть.

78 лет. Тащу тяжеленный рюкзак на дачу, дети-внуки не помогают, говорят – ничего сеять не надо, всё купим. И только правнук радует, ему 7 лет, и он счастлив, что снова лето, и мы едем на дачу. Жизнь продолжается!

I’m 7 years old. Hooray!!! Finally my grandmother and I are going to the country!

Age 14. I’m fed up with my ‘rents and their vegetable beds!

Age 20. I think Granny has gone crazy: she’s been pulling the grass all day long. I’m not against weeding the garden beds, but why not leave the grass at the fence alone?

Age 25. The country house is good only for barbecue!

Age 35. Sowing some radishes? Sounds good.

Age 45. Vegetable beds have been made all over the garden!

Age 60. There’s too much grass along the fence. Needs weeding.

Age 78. Just dragging a backpack to the country. Heavy as lead. My children and grandchildren are no help at all (“Do not sow anything, we’ll buy everything!” Ha-ha!) The great-grandson is the only delight. He’s 7, and he is happy that the summer has arrived and that both of us are going to the country. Life goes on!
