LAS VUELTAS DE LA VIDA

A mediodía salí de la facultad rumbo a una entrevista importante. Desconocía pormenores del encuentro y eso me inquietaba un poco, por la desazón de no tener todos los elementos, todas las preguntas, todas las posibles respuestas. Distraído enfilé por la calle al auto. A unos metros un estudiante del bachillerato caminaba en la misma dirección. Una señora lo detuvo y brevemente intercambiaron palabras. Ella vino a mi encuentro mientras yo buscaba una canción en el teléfono para colocarme los audífonos. Me detuvo con correcta amabilidad. Habría sido guapa, o más que guapa, elegante, consciente de su edad; ropa limpia, recién bañada, peinado impecable. Cargaba en la mano derecha una charola transparente. Con gesto cortés me ofreció chocolates finos. Así dijo. Mi cabeza estaba dando vueltas en lo que me esperaba. Gracias, ahora no. Fue la respuesta, con sonrisa acompañada. Seguimos cada uno.

En el auto la imagen de la señora me persiguió. Pensé en ella unos años atrás; poco tiempo, nada más. Pelo recogida por el calor, vestida como para la comida del domingo con familia en casa, para atender a sus hijos, a sus nietos. Feliz de la congregación. Entonces, supuse, no tenía la remota idea de que los golpes de la vida la mandarían a la calle con su mejor sonrisa y sus pastelitos para ganar los pesos que ya no entran por el sueldo del marido, de ella, del negocio perdido, de la jubilación paupérrima. Pensé, solo eso pensé y maldije las vueltas de la vida en una edad en que difícilmente puedes remontar la caída.
