The year of the cock
There was a time in my life when I did not drink alcohol. I was six I think. But when you wake up with hangover you know that obviously, that was not yesterday.
I am Czech but I am living in Japan with five Chinese guys in one apartment. So, like 3 days ago I heard about lunar new year. I never heard about that before but when my friend asked me yesterday if I celebrate it I replied ‘Of course I do!’.
So, we went to pub yesterday, we drink some magic water, did a countdown and now, the second day at 2pm I waked up with the feeling that something is wrong.
I went out of my room and I saw my flatmate sitting in common area czeching news in his phone. “Happy new year. “, I said.
I put some cereals to a bowl, sat to the other side of the table and started with my brunch. “It is a chicken year, right? “, I asked.
“A rooster is more accurate, I think. Happy new year to you too! “, he answered.
“Year of the cock? “, I asked.
“Longer, harder and stronger! “, he responded. I asked for such an answer.
“Do you know that I was born in year of the cock? “, I started the conversation again.
“A lot of things make sense now. “, he replied.
“So that means I won’t have a luck this year, right? “
“You can counter it. You must avoid red colours, but you should wear red shorts and socks. “
“I hate red. I can’t recognize the difference between red and green coz I am colour-blind. I don’t have any red socks. “
“Then that’s sucks I guess. “
“Do you know the buddhis tradition with new year lucks wishes? I mean the one when you go to the temple before new year, pray, pay and pull the wish out of the box. I tried that and guess what! Bad luck!”
“Shit happens.”, he responded, grinning.
“Yea. I will lose everything I have. Everyone I know will be ill. Everyone will hate me. I was thinking that the chance for bad luck is almost non-existent. This is so depressing. But good is that you can leave the back luck in temple. So, at the end I should be lucky.” I smiled. “Or at least not unlucky I guess. And first day in 2017 the girls started to falling to my knees!”
“Really?”, he asked by surprise.
“Yes. I was going along the train and one Japanese girl’s face kissed the ground of the platform right in front of me.” I winked at him.
“You wicked bastard!”, he replied laughing.
“Hey! I helped her!”
“You are the cock.”
“So we have new year. Do you have any plans?”, he asked after a while. I was just finishing my cereals.
“Plans?”, I asked don’t getting the points. Of course, it was not my new year at the end.
“Like for a new start. Because of new year.”
“Ah yes! Looking forward to Valentine day.”, I answered joyfully.
“Oh, you have some plans?”
“It will be awesome. Only missing one little thing to make it happen.”
“It will be hard. With all these signs about a no luck in this year. This year will be probably bad for you.”
“Nope! This year will be awesome!”
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
