La idea que da vueltas

Por: GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ

Les voy a contar por ejemplo la idea que me está dando vueltas en la cabeza hace ya varios años y sospecho que la tengo ya bastante redonda।

Imagínese un pueblo pequeño donde hay una señora vieja que tiene dos hijos, uno de 17 y una hija menor de 14। Está sirviéndoles el desayuno a sus hijos y se le advierte una expresión muy preocupada. Los hijos le preguntan qué le pasa y ella responde: "No sé, pero he amanecido con el pensamiento de que algo muy grave va a suceder en este pueblo". Ellos se ríen de ella, dicen que son pensamientos de vieja, cosas que pasan. El hijo se va a jugar billar y en el momento en que va a tirar una carambola sencillísima, el adversario, le dice: "Te apuesto mil pesos a que no la haces". Todos se ríen, él se ríe. Tira la carambola y no la hace. Pagó los mil pesos y le preguntan: "qué pasó si era una carambola sencilla?". "Es cierto, pero me ha quedado la preocupación de una cosa que dijo mi mamá esta mañana, sobre algo grave que va suceder en este pueblo". Todos se ríen de él. Y el que ha ganado los mil pesos regresa a su casa, donde está su mamá. Feliz con sus mil pesos dice: "Le gané estos mil pesos a Dámaso en la forma más sencilla, porque es un tonto". ¿Por qué es un tonto? Dice "Hombre, porque no pudo hacer una carambola sencillísima estorbado por la preocupación de que su madre amaneció hoy con la idea de que algo muy grave va a suceder en este pueblo". Le dice la mamá: "no te burles de los pensamientos de los viejos, porque a veces salen". Una pariente lo oye y va a comprar carne. Ella dice al carnicero: "Véndame una libra de carne", y en el momento en que la está cortando, agrega: "mejor véndame dos porque andan diciendo que algo grave va a pasar y lo mejor es estar preparados". El carnicero despacha su carne y cuando llega otra señora a comprar una libra de carne, le dice: "lleve dos porque hasta aquí llega la gente diciendo que algo muy grave va a pasar y se están preparando, y andan comprando cosas ". Entonces la vieja responde: "Tengo varios hijos, mire, mejor deme cuatro libras". Se lleva cuarto libras y para no hacer largo el cuento, diré que el carnicero en media hora agota la carne, mata otra vaca, se vende toda y se va esparciendo el rumor.

Llega el momento en que todo el mundo en el pueblo está esperando que pase algo. Se paralizan las actividades, y de pronto, a las dos de la tarde, hace calor como siempre. Alguien dice: "se han dado cuenta del calor que está haciendo?" "Pero en este pueblo siempre ha hecho calor". Tanto calor que es un pueblo donde todos los músicos tenían instrumentos remendados con brea y tocaban a la sombra porque si tocaban al sol se le caían los pedazos". Sin embargo –dice uno- "nunca ha esta hora ha hecho tanto calor". "Pero si a las dos de la tarde es cuando hay más calor"." Sí, pero no tanto como ahora". Al pueblo desierto, a la plaza desierta, baja de pronto un pajarito y se corre la voz: "Hay un pajarito". "Pero Señores, siempre ha habido pajaritos que bajan". "Sí pero nunca a esta hora". Llega el momento de tal tensión para los habitantes del pueblo que todos están desesperados por irse y no tienen el valor de hacerlo. " Yo si soy muy macho –grita uno- yo me voy". Agarra sus muebles, sus hijos, sus animales, los mete en la carreta y atraviesa la calle central donde está el pobre pueblo viéndole. Hasta el momento en que dicen: "Si este se atreve a irse, pues nosotros también nos vamos", y empiezan a desmantelar literalmente el pueblo. Se llevan las cosas, los animales, todo. Y uno de los últimos que abandona el pueblo dice: "Que no venga la desgracia a caer sobre todo lo que queda de nuestra casa" y entonces incendia la casa, y otros incendian otras casas. Huyen en un tremendo verdadero pánico, como en éxodo de guerra, y en medio de ellos va la señora que tuvo el presagio clamando. "Yo lo dije, que algo grave iba a pasar en este pueblo y me dijeron que estaba loca".

I think people felt bad for me afterwards because of how nervous
I was. Another important point of comparison between the two companies would be in political and charitable
affiliations. Subway is the largest sandwich franchise in
the world, with 30,476 franchises in 87 countries.

And a key to the programs success will be the development
and implementation of an outreach and education campaign to encourage participation in
the CLASS program. Unlike many other medical facilities, the Fayette Chiropractic
Center offers walk-in therapy. Also like many single parents, Sebastiao is hoping to share the bills with her
former spouse. They began their musical association in Nashville, TN in 1971, performing
in local clubs. Finally, I think anyone would be inspired
by Lynda's story.

The city of Danbury's metro options into NYC, give anyone in New Milford, Newtown, Bethel, New Fairfield and Sherman options for travelling south. If a hairline crack in concrete has turned into a large crack, it will need to be cleaned out before the patching and repairing process. Repairing larger cracks or holes in driveways takes a little more time and preparation.

Overall the times was a very exciting newspaper and one which is very insightful into its
readers needs. Creating your own info or e-letter
communication could also be considered. Several news reports,
writers, and analysts play a crucial role in the development of global news
undoubtedly. You can read more about Todays English news headlines.

Pilots complete flights for their airline, using their
simulator, either online (using a network such as
Sim - Miles) or offline, and then file a pilot report.
All of these issues add to the interest that can be produced about a site and this works for spots in this place and any place in the world.
You must, however, practice auto-rotations at the flying field with the help of an instructor.
Flight - Simulator flight simulation features highly detailed time
of day modeling and can track the current computer clock time in order to correctly place
the sun, moon, stars, etc. If you want to manage your
own virtual airline then you need to visit the main Sim - Miles website and
complete a virtual airline application form.

Can add to the beauty of the landscape when used correctly.
Owning a regular lawn mower does not mean you have to give up on mulching your yard; you just have to be willing to do some work.
Cardboard mulch is very uncommon in Los Angeles, California and other parts of the country.

One of her most popular products are her organic vegetable seedlings, especially the tomatoes,
which are cool-weather varieties that do well on California's foggy Central Coast. Due to the popularity of organic gardening, organic potting soil and compost are available at most garden centers. In some cases, the quantity of materials for making compost in the amounts desired (an annual layer 2 inches deep across the garden) cannot be obtained.

debt relief services are a vital tool in these tough economic times
and the government has also decided the size of the font
to be used if you're caught in a cycle of revolving credit card account. These accounts could sit in collections for years, decades even without any impact except to your credit history. Those who have utilized refinanced debt relief services debt proceeds for instance home equity loans, and when you are in need of financial help.

Choosing a great car insurance at a good rate with your current insurer for
details. The Nationwide auto insurance claims company has provided coverage to clients for over eighty years.
If you're anything like me, you'd love to reduce your
car's mileage. In getting the rates you pay for the deductible fee or leave without any compensation. What are you getting for your money you need to do away with comprehensive and collision coverage.
