El cerdo que yo habito

Recuerdo a mi abuelo alegre, sonriente, bromista cogiendo sus utensilios de matanza: mandil verde con rayas negras, cuchillo de pinchar, vara de afilar, algunos cuchillos, creo que un caldero y la boina de faena. Puede que fuese por San Miguel y que a varios cerdos les hubiese llegado su hora. Yo nunca le vi matar, pero me contaron muchas personas que era todo un profesional.

A mí cerdo también le llegó la hora, no creo que sea San Martín aún, pero ya hace tiempo que está listo y yo sin darme cuenta. Estaba tan listo que se pasaba, y al final me quedé mirando el cerdo en vez de la luna. A mi cerdo le lanzaron muchas margaritas y tuvo la suerte de disfrutar de una gran flor.

“No supe entonces entender nada !  Me perfumaba y me iluminaba. Nunca debería haberme escapado ! Debería haber adivinado su ternura detrás de sus pobres artimañas. Las flores son tan contradictorias ! Pero yo era demasiado joven para saber amarla.” El Principito, capítulo 7

A mi cerdo le llegó su San Martin, ¡Por fin , estaba tan gordo y cebado que era el centro de todo. Era tan centro que aunque mucho caminase, acababa siempre en el mismo lugar, egocéntrico. Pero, a mi centro le llegó la hora. Pues ya pasó mucho de San Martín.

El cerdo se ha convertido en muchas viandas y es hora de como hacia mi abuela de compartir y repartir. Darle a cada uno lo suyo y a mi señora dueña, todo. Es hora de mimar, cuidar,  madurar y curar para lucir un buen par de jamones que debe dar tan egocéntrico cerdo. Y quizás tal jamón, en su boca vuelva a acabar.

Mi abuelo siempre estaba feliz el día de la matanza, era hora de recoger y repartir. Pero yo nunca le vi matar y ahora con este cerdo mio soy yo quien va a acabar. Imagen

A breakdown of the Houston Texans 2017 draft class and its progress after two weeks of training camp:

Deshaun Watson, QB, first round (No. 12 overall): Watson has impressed the Texans’ coaching staff since he stepped into the building in Houston, and that continued in the Texans' preseason opener, where he went 15-of-25 for 179 yards passing and had a 15-yard rushing touchdown. Head coach Bill O’Brien said Watson was right about the offensive scheme about half the time -- “to be expected with a rookie" -- but he also liked Watson’s “poise and demeanor and the way that he sees the game.” Tom Savage is still the Texans’ starting quarterback and will likely start Week 1, but Watson is pushing him during training camp for that starting job.Zach Cunningham, ILB, second round (No. 57): Cunningham won’t be a starter right away for the Texans, but O’Brien said he was happy with what he did in his NFL debut on Wednesday against the Carolina Panthers. The rookie had a team-high seven tackles in the game, a few which came right on the spot after a completed pass. DeAndre Hopkins JerseysThe Texans don’t have a lot of depth at linebacker, Jadeveon Clowney Jerseysand Cunningham could be the eventual replacement for veteran Brian Cushing.

D'Onta Foreman, RB, third round (No. 89): The Texans have a lot of competition of running back, J.J. Watt Jerseysbut Foreman could come out of training camp as Lamar Miller's backup. O’Brien said he hopes to manage Miller’s carries this season, Lamar Miller Jerseysso Foreman should see quite a bit of playing time. The rookie had a few good carries in Houston’s preseason opener, including a 41-yard run, and O’Brien said he liked what Foreman did on special teams as well.

Julien Davenport, OT, fourth round (No. 130): The Texans had a need at right tackle entering the draft but waited until the fourth round to address it. Houston drafted Davenport of Bucknell knowing he needed time to develop into an NFL tackle. Brian Cushing JerseysThe Texans like his athleticism and hope eventually he will be able to see time at tackle.
