Go to c...

It is a gesture, very Argentine and, very difficult to contain, it does not solve anything, but it says something very clear: “Go to c...”.


With my boyfriend, after a few years of relationship, we established some basic rules to be able to  live together in peace. There are not many, but breaking them can bring serious consequences. Serious. So that anger doesn't unleash, then, we try to respect them in a rajatabla. One of them has to do with a  gesture , very  Argentine and therefore very difficult to contain. It is a  gesture that does not solve anything, but it says something very clear: “  Go to c... ”.You know which one I mean, don't you? For those who are not internalized, it is done by carrying his hand back by the side of the head, as if we were throwing something over our shoulder. It is a single  movement , accurate and liberating: it is almost impossible to control; at that moment, the hand moves alone, as when the phrase comes out of our mouth that we know we should not say. Some people, including me, consider that  gesture very bad taste. But we know that when he comes, he comes. Forcefully, with indignation, as a last resort, but it comes. That's why, for my boyfriend and me, it's a sign of great consideration to try to hold him and avoid chaos. However, sometimes, it is well worth a little bit of chaos as long as you can go through that liberating moment.
