Además, asistiría por primera vez a una clase mixta, una novedad tan turbadora como apetecible como inquietante como desconocida como vete tú a saber con diecisiete años. Y todo ello con mi inglés primitivo, una combinación primate de pronunciación sioux y vocabulario reducido. Menudo panorama. El primer día de clase marcó con exactitud la rutina matinal de los Johnson para el resto del año: Había que levantarse a las siete y media. No hacer la cama antes de salir de la habitación se consideraba sacrilegio.
No hacer la cama antes de salir de la habitación se consideraba sacrilegio. A las ocho desayunábamos lo que Betty hubiera dispuesto. A esa hora el mando a distancia de la tele era suyo; entre noticias y magazines matinales, siempre nos colaba unos minutos de Popeye que emitía una de las cadenas públicas. Phil y yo poníamos y recogíamos la mesa y dejábamos listo el lavavajillas. Nuestro medio de transporte para ir al instituto sería el Buick del 76 conducido por Phil — al que, por cierto, apenas si había visto en los días anteriores—, aunque en ocasiones señaladas, en las que su madre necesitaba el coche grande, utilizaríamos el pequeño Ford Maverick.
Les sudan las manos a los mandriles? La cualidad racional del ser humano no lo hace superior al resto de los animales; es la desvergüenza de los irracionales la que los convierte en seres poderosos y felices frente a nuestra tímida indefensión, nuestro proverbial retraimiento, nuestra inservible introversión. Mi aclimatación a unos horarios, usos y costumbres tan distintos a los que traía implantados de España —diecisiete años de manías producen quistes inextirpables— se había producido con naturalidad, y no podía ser de otra manera a pesar de la angustia vivida, una congoja que ahora recordaba con risa floja mientras preparaba otro litrazo de zumo de naranja concentrado y congelado marca Orange Fast, que había que ver cómo volaba en casa de los Johnson.
