Remember last week when I got on a train and I was really scared? The good news is my money is still safe and sound. The bad news….I got off the train after about 60 kilometers because I couldn’t stand the pressure of my deep dark thoughts.
On my way back home I started to randomly send friend requests to people on Facebook and little did I know that I sent friend requests 2 girls who were married to each other!
Sabina: Cu ce te pot ajuta?
What can I help you with?
Sabina: Ai chef de glume sau ai ceva intenție clară că ai vrut să mă adaugi pe FB?
Are you in the mood for jokes or do you have some clear intention since you wanted to add me on FB?
Sergiu: Cred că din greșeală te-am adăugat.
I think I added you by mistake.
Sabina: Da, și pe mine și pe nevasta mea. Greșeală interesantă.
Yes, me and my wife too. Interesting mistake.
Sergiu: O coincidență.
Sergiu: Altceva nu poate fi.
It can’t be anything else.
Sabina: Cu plăcere.
I said thanks because she accepted my friend request right then and there after she realized I’m in such a calm and collected guy.
From now on, I won’t be teaching grammar anymore since you know enough Romanian that you’re able to look things up for yourself. All the upcoming lessons will be like this one, I will be teaching Romanian through conversations, so the lessons will be more like blog posts.
