Silly Monkey Stories #21 – Never a dull moment with him

Canada21/Jan/2004 – Juan (3)
I recorded two from him on the same day:
  1. He took a DVD from home (“Lion King”) and he took it to school. There, his teacher caught him trying to sell it to a girl. When I asked how much he was asking for the DVD, he replied: A coin, Pa”.
  2. That same day I found out that he had changed his name at school. He wouldn’t be Juan anymore, but ‘zJuan’ (‘zed-juan’). He signed all his drawings with the new moniker and he made sure everybody was aware of his new identity, with so much authority that another mother ask Gaby regarding this, and even his teacher doubted and accepted the ‘zJuan’. To be honest, this was his second name change in about two weeks, because before he had decided he was going to go by ‘Florencio Juan’.

Le anoté dos el mismo día:
  1. Se llevó un DVD de casa (“El rey león”) y se lo llevó a la escuela. La maestra lo sorprendió tratando de vendérselo a una nena. Cuando le pregunté cuánto pedía por el DVD, me contestó: Una moneda, Pa”.
  2. Ese mismo día me enteré de que se había cambiado el nombre. Ya no se llamaría más ‘Juan’, sino ‘zJuan’ (se pronuncia ‘zed-juan’). Firmó así todos sus dibujos y le hizo saber de su nueva identidad a todo el mundo, con tanta autoridad que una mamá la consultó a Gaby al respecto y la propia maestra dudó y le aceptó el ‘zJuan’. En realidad, este era su segundo cambio de nombre en un par de semanas, porque antes ya había decidido que se iba a llamar ‘Florencio Juan’.
