Rus turned 40 Saturday - with dignity, gravitas and a few drinks.
There wasn't much I could give him (having given hand in marriage, in two months a son...) so wrapped-up "Teach Yourself Bulgarian" and promised unflagging study of his mother tongue.
New favorite phrase:
Корабът ми на въздушна възглавница е пълен със змиорки
(Korabãt mi na v'zdyšna vãzglavnica e pãlen sãs zmiorki)
(My hovercraft is full of eels)
