2012, mai am putin si plec. Acum, inainte sa ma indrept catre aeroport, trebuie sa-ti spun cateva lucruri

Desigur, 2011, astept sa mi le spui. Insa chiar trebuie sa pleci? Ce o sa ma fac eu acum, singur, 12 luni de zile? Tu ai fost tatal meu, de la tine am invatat cum sa ma pregatesc pentru prima mea zi pe Terra, cum sa fac fata cu fusul orar…

– Pai crezi ca o sa ai probleme cu fusul orar?

– Pai da, 2011, sigur ca o sa am probleme cu fusul orar. Imagineaza-ti doar: Trebuie sa fiu prezent in Romania, in America, Franta, Germania, Lituania, Belgia etc.,  ah… si in China! Tu iti dai seama ce zgomot o sa faca 1, 341 de miliarde de chinezi atunci cand or sa ma primeasca in viata lor? Oauu….

– 2012, nu trebuie sa-ti fie frica. Te-am invatat sa mergi, te-am invatat sa te hranesti, ai invatat din cultura fiecarei tari in parte dar… Cel mai important, ai invatat cum se sarbatoreste! Tot ceea ce va trebui sa faci este sa te bucuri alaturi de oameni! Oamenii te primesc cu placere, primeste-i si tu pe ei la fel! Fii prietenul lor!

– 2011?

Da, 2012, spune

– Eu o sa fiu prietenul lor insa… insa, o sa ma paraseasca si ei asa cum ai facut tu? Or sa plece dupa 12 luni de zile?

2012, nu o sa fii parasit. Nici eu nu am fost parasit, am ramas in istoria Terrei. Eu am plecat mai departe. Asa o sa faci si tu. Pleci mai departe si tii legatura cu 2013 spre exemplu. O sa tii legatura si cu mine.

– 2011, pai cum o sa tinem legatura? Da-mi numarul tau de telefon… Te rooog. In primele mele zile iti dai seama ca o sa fiu privilegiat si o sa te pot suna. Mai ales in prima mea dimineata, pe 1 ianuarie, trebuie sa te sun!

– 2012, nu o sa putem vorbi la telefon. Va fi suficient sa te gandesti la mine si la oamenii carora le vei fi alaturi. De fiecare data cand te vei gandi la mine eu o sa stiu acest lucru. Stii… Eu o sa lucrez dar o sa-mi fac timp si pentru tine.

…Ahmm.. ? … 2011? Ca ce vei lucra?

– …Pai mi-am gasit un job de arhivar. Insa este foarte interesant. Am rolul de a inregistra toate momentele placute ale omenirii din 2010, 2009…. Cam 150 de ani am de inregistrat. Dar stai sa vezi ce tare. Ce crezi ca job va avea 2013?

– La fel ca al tau?

– Nu, 2012, nu la fel ca al meu. El va trebui sa inregistreze ghinioanele :))) Ha!

Foarte funny, 2011.

Am inteles, 2011. Chiar ma bucur ca am vorbit cu tine. Ai fost un an amuzant, iubitor si plin de viata, optimist! Eu o sa incerc sa fiu un an in care solidaritatea, iubirea, prietenia, perseverenta, claritatea si succesele vor avea prioritate. Totusi, cand voi intampina si ceva esecuri sau ghinioane o sa-i cer ajutorul lui 2013:)))

Foarte bine, 2012! Mult succes atunci! Vino sa te imbratisez! La multi ani!

– Multumesc mult, 2011. Si tie, in calatoria ta, iti urez succes! Si tine minte… Ca frate al tau, nu te voi uita niciodata!

– Mersi, 2012! Sa ne traiesti, 2012!

We love you, 2011! Welcome, 2012!

2012, I will be gone in a few moments! Now, before I go to the airport, I have to say a few things to you.

Of course, 2011, I am listening  you. But you really have to go? What I am going to do now, alone, for 12 months? You were my father. From you I’ve learned how to prepare myself for my first day on Terra, how to cope with the time zone…

– Do you think that you will have any problems with the time zone?

– Of course, 2011, that I will have problems. Just imagine: I have to be present in Romania, in America, France, Germany, Lithuania, Belgium etc., ah… and in China! Do you realize how much noise 1.341 bilion chinese people will do? Oau…

– 2012, you don’t need to be afraid. I learned you how to walk, how to feed yourself, you learned from the culture of each country but the most important thing is that you learned how you celebrate! So, all you have to do is to enjoy with the people! The people are welcoming you so you need to welcome them too.  Be their friend!

2011?

Yes, 2012? Tell me.

I am going to be their friend but… but, they are going to leave me as you do right now? They are going to leave after 12 months?

2012, you are not going to be “abandoned”.  For example, I remain in the history of Terra. I just move forward. That’s the same thing you are going to do. But not now. You will move forward and you will keep in touch with 2013 – especially in December. You will keep in touch with me too.

2011, so how you are going to keep in touch? Please tell me your phone number. I will definitely call you, especially in my first days when I am privileged. Especially in my first morning, on 1st of January, I have to call you!

– 2012, we will not be able to talk on phone. It will be enough just to think of me and the people which you are going to share the new 2012 year. Each time you will think of me, I will know. You know… I am going to work , but I will make time for you too.

– …Ahhmm.. 2012, what is your job about?

–  Well, I find a job where I am an archivist. I will register every single beautiful moment of 2010, 2009 and so on. I have to register like 150 years.  But the bad moments… well, 2013 will record them :)))

– Verry funny, 2011.

I understand, 2011. I am really glad that I had the opportunity to talk to you! You have been a funny, optimiscal and happy year! I will try to be a year where solidarity, love, friendship, perseverance, clarity and succes will have priority! Nevertheless, when I will have bad luck, I will ask 2013 for help :)))

– Verry well, 2012! Good Luck! Come hear to hug you! Happy new year!

– Than you, 2012. And 2011.. I wish you good luck in your journey! And remember, as your brother, I will never forget you!
