Posladek dneva

20.07.2017

“My family is from Nigeria, and my full name is Uzoamaka, which means ‘The road is good’. Quick lesson: My tribe is Igbo, and you name your kid something that tells your history and hopefully predicts your future. So anyway, in grade school, because my last name started with an A, I was the first in roll call, and nobody ever knew how to pronounce it. So I went home and asked my mother if I could be called Zoe. I remember she was cooking, and in her Nigerian accent she said, ‘Why?’ I said, ‘Nobody can pronounce it.’ Without missing a beat, she said, ‘If they can learn to say Tchaikovsky and Michelangelo and Dostoyevsky, they can learn to say Uzoamaka’.”

Ta zgodbica igralke Uzo Aduba mi je bila tako zelo všeč, da jo kar moram deliti. In vsa slava in čast mamam, ki znajo tako hitro odreagirati na takšne otroške tegobe. Res, čast in slava.

    In želim take hitre reakcije tudi slovenskim plemenskim mamam z raznimi Šanajami, Kanenasi, Lejsi, Kiani, Liami in kar je še tega mambodžambota…
