La Tía Eugenia



Eran una familia. Se amaban, se respetaban.


Hasta que llegó la tía Eugenia de la República China.


Trajo desorden donde había orden. Trajo enfermedades, pestes, frustraciones.


Quisieron expulsarla de la casa. Ella se negó. "Estaré aquí todo el tiempo que quiera".


Una mañana despertó sin piernas. La mañana siguiente, sin brazos. Y la otra sin cabeza.


La familia volvió a amarse, respetarse y por sobre todo: a comer en buena ley.

They were a family. They were loved, were respected.


Until the aunt Eugenia arrived from China.


She brought disorder where there was order. She brought diseases, plagues, frustrations.


The family want to expel her from the house. She refused. ‘I’ll remain here all the time I want’.


One morning she woke up without legs. The following morning without arms. And the next morning without head.


The family returned to love itself, to be respected and by mainly: to eat in good faith.
