“Delicado”

Era o ano de 1968, e eu estava com nove anos. Ela tinha dez e estava na mesma sala que eu: 3º ano primário, em uma escola pública. Eu, mineira; ela, carioca. Morávamos na capital paulista. Chamava-se Nanci, era mais alta e encorpada do que eu, e, embora morássemos num bairro mediano, sua família tinha mais posses que a minha, afinal, quando ela não levava “delicados”, “dan top”, de merenda, comprava pipoca e doces no carrinho em frente à escola. Eu só levava pão com manteiga e café com leite, quando tinha.

Mas eu tinha o que lhe faltava: atenção e inteligência e, por isso, nunca fora reprovada, o que já lhe acontecera. E, ainda assim, ela não aprendia. Então, sua mãe me solicitou que a ensinasse, depois da aula. Eu ia, e, como recompensa, ganhava um saquinho de “delicados”. Voltava para casa admirando as balinhas de goma coloridas… Gostava mais da azul, era de anis. Mas não comia tudo, dividia com os seis irmãos. E ficava torcendo para que a mãe me chamasse mais, para ganhar mais “delicados”. E ela me chamou, porque a filha não perdeu média na última prova. Se a mãe dela apostava em mim, ela se esmerava em me humilhar. Ciente da minha condição financeira, fazia-me “comer com os olhos e lamber com a testa”, espalhando guloseimas sobre a mesa, sem me oferecer. E eu era educadíssima para não pedir. Ao final dos estudos, ela escolhia o que a mãe me oferecereria: “delicados”.

Lívia era a professora de Moral e Civismo, e a ela cabia preparar os eventos de comemoração das datas cívicas. Desde que fui alfabetizada, aos sete anos, no primeiro ano, época que comecei a frequentar a escola, eu era sempre escolhida para declamar poesias: Dia das Mães, Dia da Independência, Dia da Bandeira, etc. Eu tinha facilidade para decorar, pois sempre tive paixão pelos livros. Na minha infância, eu acreditava que todo autor só tinha o livro publicado depois de morto, afinal, Olavo Bilac, Cecília Meireles, Casimiro de Abreu, declamados por mim, naquela época, já tinham passado desta para outra vida. E também os romancistas: Machado de Assis, José de Alencar, Camilo Castelo Branco e tantos outros.

Não que eu fosse a única a ser escolhida, já que havia outros eventos além de declamação, mas sempre eu participava. Já, Nanci, nunca. Creio que era porque não levasse jeito para a coisa. Era dispersa, agitada, ria à toa, e esquecia facilmente o texto.

A mãe, diferentemente da minha que era dona de casa, era despachada e ajudava o marido no comércio. Tinham um pequeno armazém, de onde vinham as guloseimas…

No mês de novembro daquele ano, dona Lívia escolheria quatro alunas para representar as cores da bandeira do Brasil. O fato foi comunicado às mães em uma reunião escolar. Ao final da reunião, vejo Nanci e a mãe puxarem o braço de dona Lívia, para outra sala…

Naquela semana, ao anunciar o nome das alunas que representariam o verde, o amarelo, o azul e o branco, o meu nome não estava na lista. Mas o da Nanci estava.

Os ensaios aconteciam durante as aulas de D. Lívia, sendo assistidos por todos os alunos da sala.

Eram quadras relacionadas a cada cor, cantadas. Nanci representava a cor branca e, olhando para os lados, com risinhos esparsos e puxando pedaços de palavras da memória, cantava com o seu sotaque carioca: “Sou branca, a cor simbólica/ da “pax” que reina “conxtante”/ “nexte” “Paíx” tão amado/ Pátria “dox” “Bandeirantex”.

Depois, mais dez meninas, entre elas, a Nanci, vestidas de enfermeiras, carregando um “fuzil” de madeira enrolado num papel crepom marrom, cantaram e interpretaram: “Defendendo a nossa Bandeira,/ mulher brasileira sempre teve opinião./ Nós seremos enfermeiras/ e, se for preciso, manobramos um canhão./ Não temos medo da fronte de ninguém/ nós, as mulheres, sabemos lutar também./ Cada brasileira representa um fuzil/ para defender a pátria amada, oh, Brasil!”

            1968 foi “o ano que não terminou”.

Naquele dia, eu, desprovida de “armas”, fiquei na plateia, assistindo a tudo. Ao final do espetáculo, uma grande mesa, arrumada ao lado do pátio, exibia muitos “delicados”, “dan tops”, chocolates, etc, etc…, servidos por Nanci e sua mãe. E, eu, como já ameaçava poetar, pensava que Nanci repetia para si: “Naisci”. “Naisci”…

  21. It’s reasonable to mention that Sic Bo is just really a highly
    popular casino game in Asia since possible theoretically acquire considerable quantities money with
    this popular video game (normally bet by those who have been in the minority
    with regard to many who bet the minimal volume allowed by the
    casinos). It is also reasonable to state that many
    of those players learn this match in an effort to try and
    make a quick buck. Many elderly players however are brought on by the fact which they can win enormous and that they like to attempt to polish their probability of
    winning huge. This really is the way the Sic Bo / Tai-Sai game play
    usually occurs.

    The trader generally begins away with twenty or ten or more dice,
    which are coated using a clear cover. The trader will subsequently place eight or seven dice into a red purse, which is later passed to the players.
    The aim of the game would be to allow players to attempt to take out
    the utmost amount of championships from the board while perhaps not letting any
    one of those other people remove some one of these dice out of the plank game.

    If a new player wins a jackpot, then this player needs to
    replace all of the dice that they originally removed
    from your boardgame. When a player looses a jackpot, they must hold back till it changes before they are able to attempt to remove another
    group of dice.

    The first part of the gambling method is reasonably easy.

    The guidelines for betting are fairly typical. Players
    are invited to place stakes that match exactly with
    the overall casino entire bank roll (maybe not their personal bet figures ).

    No matter what the final bet total is, all
    bets have been performed at the same manner – throughout the traditional, multi-line betting
    process at which the man gambling pays off one line of currency plus
    receives a matching field of currency ahead. In a no limit match such as
    for instance Sic Bo, though, a new player may also fold their stakes before the last bettors have a possiblity to take
    them.

    If a casino presents odds for particular matches, odds are often recorded in Roman numerals.
    There are a few variations among of chances, however. By way of
    example, in the No Limit Texas Holdem match, a player could receive
    two pairs, but several cards in the event the kettle is
    not small. From the No Limit texas hold em match, people could obtain a single card or two cards if their initial bet has been some set.
    Regardless of the type of odds, however, gamers are always instructed to place their stakes according to
    this odds. This ensures that at the event that their first bet
    wins, then they even have the opportunity to select another
    bet at a better rate.

    Edge betting is really just a favorite strategy in many casino gambling games.
    At an online casino match, a border bettor will often utilize two different varieties of bets –
    just one for one apparatus, and also you for two units. At a video casino, however, there are no limits to this stakes.
    Edge players may often bet numerous times over an identical wager, sometimes doubling, or tripling the first
    bet amount. For this reason, they are a really good way whenever you have the opportunity to accomplish this, and you
    can get off with spending out more winnings than your house overlooks.

    If it regards selecting your best bets, look at the
    overall winning hand and also the chances of every and every.
    Both factors will probably be utilised to establish which stakes will be the best.
    Generally in most circumstances, if you’ve the opposite hand, you are going to
    have the very best possibilities of winning the pot; when you yourself have exactly the
    ideal hand, then you stand a good likelihood of winning the marijuana.
    For those who possess a exact high total score, then but you have much less
    of a prospect of winning at the entire rating. This really is really where many casino players wind up,
    because they usually do not want to reduce an excessive amount of money whenever they’re inside the match.
