List of expectations

He meets two friends who form the couple, starts talking to them, and one of them, mixed, says a hope list instead of a waiting list. Your partner realizes, but it conceals good. The author of the story is learning Basque and is awaiting the results of the recent study. I have later learned that he has not passed the test and that he is rather desperate.

We say goodbye and I remember the lapsus: “A good set of words to talk about Osakidetza’s waiting lists; waiting for the appointment, to be called once,” I thought of myself. And then it strikes me that, as it couldn't be otherwise, Twitter can be a success, and maybe it can be viralized, to my modest extent. Or, what the hell, why not write the ARGIA column itself on this topic.

But I'd stay with humor on Twitter, and that Osakidetza's accounts are not to go laminar and crack, to fall with a scarce joke. The moment I write, I have a slightly reddened eye. In the phone call, the nurse has made a kind of diagnosis without seeing me straight ahead. But I've gone to the pharmacy for the recommended eye drops, and the pharmacist has made a completely different diagnosis, looking at my eye closely. In my next phone call with the nurse, it seemed to me that I had to put some pressure to get a face-to-face consultation with the doctor. Who benefits from social networking?

It says a list of mixed expectations instead of a waiting list. The author of the talk is learning Basque and is awaiting the results of the recent study

I've made progress with Plan B, of course, and now that I'm quite ahead with the column, I've realized that maybe my friend didn't tell the hope list, but the hope room, instead of the waiting room, of course. And if that were the case, which I'm not sure, I would find it even better to play words, it could have other substantial senses. But where does this lead me?

In the end, I thought that language can be very productive for the development of thought, but then I saw the other side of the coin: what can be surface, if not for much more. And moving on to myself, I have not come to the conclusion that the limits of my world are the limits of my language, as Wittgenstein said, but that my thinking – or, in my case, the chaos of loose ideas – is partly conditioned by the occurrences derived from an eccentric game of words. Sometimes almost to the limit.

I just write. No. Tired. Tired? Calla, Antton! Don’t get me confused, I and myself are enough, now, for you to have more doubts. That's why? Can't it? Yes. Perhaps with difficulty and tiredness. Is it hard to write because I'm tired or tired?

Difficult or tired, the consequence... [+]

Nine years ago, pending the adoption of the Mordaza Law, the Council of Europe itself said that the law was going to be “disproportionate” and its “great concern”. “This law is a reactionary and conservative absurdity to criminalize street protest and criticism,”... [+]

Large casserole

However, in order not to be... [+]

Not suitable

In a one-hour commute to the workplace, I am accompanied by the car radio. On yesterday's journey, I had the opportunity to enjoy a short story program, as the last port of the road, full of curves, began in Karrantza. Short legends, yes, of few words, but stories of great... [+]
