Put it in the Trash…. Now that sounds really bad right? I personally wouldn’t want to insult any politician.
After reflection, I realized that I could have said “discarded” or “to throw out” as possible translations, but this was just perfect for a funny moment. Funny that we had no intentions other than to teach each other English and Russian, and this is how it turned out.
I spent the day writing cultural notes about Russia in my “tetrad” journal, but I don’t think I’ll publicise a list over the net. It’s something you could personally ask me about, since some of it borders on stereotypes and generalizations. I feel that it’s better to think of each person as an individual than to make assumptions first, and secondly, I don’t want to impose any politically incorrect views on readers here.
