Christmas Eve is only a few days away.
And you may love it or you may hate it.
Santa Claus or the Grinch.
Red or green.
Either way, family dinner will arrive and, as always, the current situation will be discussed.
Covid in the appetizers, Pablo Iglesias for the first course, Pedro Sanchez for the second and for the dessert another one of Coronavirus.
How to have dinner on Christmas Eve without talking about politics or COVID?
Do like Mateo, a customer-friend.
He went to last year's dinner with the most comfortable shoes he could find.
With a suit, of course.
And for the feet, no stiff, narrow, high-heeled shoes.
Not even flip-flops. For God's sake! That's too "quinqui".
But a pair of huarache type sandals, the ZaUri Hanami.
He told me that with a suit it looks very "cool".
And nobody noticed the new tattoo on his neck.
Neither the new Mohican-style hair cut.
Not even the colour of his suit.
Everyone asked him about the sandals.
As they say: It's is a matter of taste.
Mateo was more concerned about his foot, than his aesthetics.
Although, by the way, some moccasins would not have made him a dandy either.
But let's not run so much, which we minimalists like very much.
Before dinner we will have the Christmas Lottery.
With a very bald man handing out prizes (collecting euros) to all the homes in Spain.
And with my friend Jorge buying lottery of all the Black Cats of Spain, and me trying to convince him not to throw the money away on luckness and invest it in some Lems boots.
Because as my grandmother used to say, the best lottery you can win is to be healthy.
And health, is not something you win it as a prize thanks to luckness.
It's about taking care of it (and even improve it!).
And what better than to start at the bottom, at the feet.
And those of your family.
