– And today we have a workshop.

And you?

– Agritating our coach is on us.

For freelancing.

Well, yesterday make-up

Done for no reason.

< strong>Image maker created:

The eye is now – a solid bruise.

– And here baby sitter

Haipanuland – not that word!

Year promoted parent

Together with the child on talk show.

– And we have a well-known guru in the field of architecture

Did selfie for PR,

Luk he chose extremal.

Only from the roof of the train thundered straight into the hospital.

– And we have some kind of frontman suddenly top -manager became.

– Exclusive?

– Managed!

Invited us all  offline, marked our deadline, streamed a speech his pro startups, pro mainstream and pro headline.< /p>

Realizing all our troubles

In nostalgic sadness

Remembering as boyfriends

They called them grooms.

Instead of casting our mothers held bridegrooms,

And not mans, but men gave flowers to girls.

The party was party

Improvement upgrade.

Maybe , after all, we have enough

Russians to offend people?

 At the end of the dictionary is a quote Russian publicist Vissarion Belinsky: “Use a foreign word, when there is a Russian word equivalent to it, – means to insult both common sense and common taste.
