An Argentine moment

A friend came over my place last night, as we were just finishing dinner (almost 9PM, of course). He invited me to go to Tims for a coffee, so we could talk. We did, and I realized that he mostly needed to be heard, because it was obvious that I could not help a lot.

But the whole "sorry to come over so late, could we go have a coffee" thing was a very Argentine moment to me (though he's Canadian)...

I don't know if I could do anything for him last night, but he made me feel I was a good friend.

Un amigo pasó por mi casa anoche, justo cuando terminábamos de cenar (cerca de las 9PM, por supuesto). Me invitó a ir a Tims a tomar un café, así podríamos hablar. Fuimos, y se me hizo obvio que el más que nada necesitaba que alguien lo escuchara, porque era muy poco lo que yo podría hacer.

Pero el "disculpá que venga tan tarde, podemos ir a tomar un 'feca'" me hizo sentir que estaba de nuevo en Argentina por un momento (a pesar de que él es canadiense)...

No sé si pude hacer algo por él anoche, pero a mí me hizo sentir que era un buen amigo.

I don't know if I could do anything for him last night, but he made me feel I was a good friend.
