«Shrimp without beer — money down the drain«- said the popular saying of the summer cottage of the Moscow Art Theater workers. I spent every summer with Mkhatovs, up to the age of sixteen. Shrimp regularly supplied our company the most «prosperous«Of us named Gena, whose»folk»Grandfather loved them dearly.

They drank a dark beer from a stall, which nobody liked, but the light one was somehow considered a bad tone.
Behind these midnight gatherings, many interesting stories, games and novels were born a month long.
Local guys and their henna-painted girlfriends came running from the neighboring villages to the smoke of our campfire.
They did not understand our shrimp sauce, brought own-steered steers.
Our parents showed miracles of diplomacy, demanding only a clear report on the place of deployment.
And when Zhenya’s mother, singer Anna Nikolaevna, taught him guitar chords, we began to invite adults to almost bard concerts.

“I was born on June 21, the longest day of the year, on the same day as Prince William.
I have two red diplomas. I speak five languages - Russian, English, Italian, French and Ukrainian, like my grandmother.
I managed to work in various companies, and as a result I chose what I get great pleasure from: throwing words, catching them and putting them into sentences.
I am lucky and I have a great intuition.
I can cook, embroider, drive a car. I love Chekhov’s stories more than anything else; I am lazy and tasty to eat.
I almost always manage to combine these three pleasures. ”
