When things seem simple, Argentines are distrustful: we always give them one more little bit. Phrases like looking for “the fifth paw to the cat” or “hair in the egg” say a lot about us. And we say them a lot. He looks for the fifth leg of the cat (or the hair to the egg) who argues for insignificant issues, who repairs in details that are not important, who looks for defects or problems where there are no. He is looking for the fifth leg of the cat who distrusts for others, the one who doubts everything, the one who sees inconvenience even in the simplest things. We are complicated, it is not easy to please us and we are used to thinking badly in doubt. We find it hard to relax and accept that everything is just fine. But maybe it's that constant alertness that keeps us walking, active, sagacious. Always looking a little further. Maybe that's why we're creative, restless, curious. Maybe that's why we never run out of resources or no answers. We'll have to continue, then, looking for the cat's fifth leg. We'll have to see if we finally find that hair on the egg. But in the meantime, let's enjoy when things are easy, when they go well, when, simply, the universe is aligned and there is nothing to worry about.
