My sister tells me always that I have a concentration deficit. That means that I easily get distracted, which is true. I have problems to pretend interest when I am bored and I easily get annoyed. But I called it never concentration deficit, I called it curiosity, because my concentration is like a butterfly. I can find interest in everything, at least for 10 seconds. So if somebody talks to me and there is a waiter passing, holding on a silver tray something that looks “oh, what is this???” – I am “sorry, what did you say?”. I know this habit can be rude and I try to work on it. But on the other hand I learn a lot in this way. I found this cigarette paper and I realized that I know nothing about Slovenija. I wasn’t even sure about its geographical position. Did you know that the international calling code is +386? I read some things about Slovenia and I learnt that their most famous musicians, writers, poets and scientist have names I have never heard before. How is life in this country? What is the typical food? How come that I know more about countries that are on the other side of the globe than about this country which has a direct border with Italy and is part of the European Union (but they don’t use the Euro – why?)? I have no plan about Slovenia, that’s it. Don’t blame it on Slovenia, blame it on me. Another thing: the waiter passed with an ice cappuccino and it looked so delicious that I had to try it at once. It was gooood! And the guy next to me was “oh, what is this???”.
