    Rueben, Aprendi tu lengua en la escuela secundario. Cuatro anos y aprendi casi nada. En la universidad, mejore pero no mucho, pues gane un 3.9. Como es posible? Tengo verguenza de escribirte como ahora porque aunque Espanol fuera mi "major" en la unversidad. No podria aprender muy bien el aspecto de "entenderlo" cuando alguien me hablaba. 8 anos, y escribo ASI como ves aqui. Que disastro. Hace 35 anos que practico. Es sorpresa si me entiendas! Abrazos! andrea

    Such an emotional write, Ruben! But, honestly, I wouldn't cry for football...I guess men take it harder. Anyway, why aren't you posting lately? What have you been up to? We're waiting for a new poem, you know...:) I just hope everything's alright with you. ~Emily

    Everyone is on summer vacation from the soup?? Have not seen any new writes from you my friend...are you ok??

    The ending is abrupt but open ended, accepting indeed, or welcoming if you get my drift. I found it intriguing and evocative, nice write.

    Well, you got further than we did, and deservedly so. England played terribly. A very visual and poignant write ~ Sharon :)
