My friend Svetli

I gotta tell you about a Bulgarian friend of mine named Svetli. This guy is slightly older than me and has been a Christian for about 4 years. He is an extremely passionate gentleman and can be funloving one minute and serious the next.

He is in town this weekend for work so I had him come over. We went out and bought dinner. Then he saw how dirty my house was. I have been cleaning a little  in preparation for my exit. But Svetli is a tough cookie. He saw my meager attempts at cleaning and decided to help me whether I liked it or not.

Over the next two days he vigorously guided mm through the various dirty parts of my apartment, from my floors to my toilet ot my greasy stove. Every 5 minutes was a shocked look on his face and him saying “Mark, Vij! Vij! (Look! Look!)” and then me groaning and grabbing the necessary materials to clean it.

He didn’t let me give up. And you know what? I actually had a lot of fun cleaning with him. At the end of everything I actually had a decently clean apartment and a very happy Svetli. I am going to miss this man very much.
