Breve conversación entre dos latinoaméricanos en Asia

30 marzo, 2021

Juan: Adiós, me dio gusto conocerte.
Valentina: ¿Por qué ‘adiós’? ¿Ya no nos vamos a volver a ver?
Juan: No creo.
Valentina: ¿Y eso, por qué?
Juan: Mira, la verdad es que yo creo que no nos caemos tan bien.
Valentina: Nadie me había dicho eso antes.
Juan: Yo nunca había dicho algo así antes, pero lo he pensado muchas veces. De hecho, gracias por dejarme decírtelo a ti por primera vez.
Valentina: La verdad es que no me ha caído en gracia, ¿por qué me dijiste mucho gusto de conocerte entonces?
Juan: Ese es un buen punto, lo dije como algo que decimos mucho los latinoamericanos, tú entiendes de esas cosas. Pero, ¿sabes? Ahora que he podido ser sincero contigo me caes mejor. De hecho, ¿podríamos vernos otra vez?
Valentina: ¿Por qué no mejor te vas directo al carajo?

Se dieron la media vuelta y nunca se volvieron a ver.
