Kako nam jo je tokrat zagodel?
Natakarici v gostilni, kamor nas je povabil na kosilo ob svojem rojstnem dnevu, je, ko se je šel nekaj dni prej meniti glede pogostitve, naročil, naj nikakor ne spusti naprej nikogar, ki ne bi imel s seboj vstopnice.
Ja, prav ste slišali. Večer prej nam je vsem razdelil vstopnice, take zaresne s kuponom, ki jih je po njegovih željah oblikoval moj oči, take, profesionalno spete v lično podolgovato knjižico, iz katere nam jih je eno po eno ponosno trgal. Prisežem! :)
In, na srečo prijazna gospa Tadeja iz gostilne Sla-ma-r v Šmarje-Sapu našega dedka že toliko pozna od lani, da je rade volje sodelovala pri njegovi vragoliji in ob prihodu vpričo zadovoljnega slavljenca zelo resno trgala kupončke. :)
(Zabavne so pa tudi panjske končnice.)
What has he done this time?
A few days before he invited us for a lunch for his birthday, he had told a waitress in the gostilna to not let anyone of us in who doesn’t bring her/his ticket.
Yes, you heard it right. The evening before the celebration he distributed tickets with coupons that my dad had designed based on his ideas, such, the real ones, professionally fastened together into a cute little coupon-book, and then proudly tearing them out one by one for each of us. I swear! :)
On fortunately kind Mrs. Tadeja from gostilna Sla-ma-r knows him already very well from the last year, so she gladly took part at his witty game and was quite seriously checking and tearing-off our coupons at the entrance under supervision of our very much pleased birthday man. :)
(And panjske končnice, the traditional Slovenian folk art of beehive-panel paintings, are also full of fun many times.)
