Sergey: Next one.
Me: “You had a record player.” “I didn’t have a record player.”
Sergey: Yes, but it’s a question. Say it like this: “You had a record player?”
M: You had a record player.
S: No. “You had a record player?”
M: You had a record player.
S: No. “You had a record player?”
M: You HAD a record player!
S: No, that’s insisting, not asking.
M: You had a RECORD PLAYER?
S: OK, but that sounds really obnoxious.
M: You had a record player.
S: No!
M: Look, I can hear how I’m saying it wrong. I just… can’t…
S: Try again. “You had a record player?”
M: You had a record player?
S: Oh! You did it! OK. Next one. “You had a television?”

About This Blog

I'm an American who started blogging when I moved to Russia in 2004. Eventually I moved to Sweden, where life is pleasant but uneventful, and stopped blogging for lack of interesting things to say. And then I joined Facebook, which further destroyed any motivation for blogging. Maybe someday I'll start blogging again, but for now, this blog is dormant, an archive of The Russia Years: 2004-2008.
