Reading by and with minu Christmas stories
"As a Gemini with Libra in the ascendant, I was a happy, harmony-loving child.
However, my family didn't offer much in the way of harmony - I grew up surrounded by four women, my mother, my widowed aunt, my grandmother and my godmother. My father was the rooster who pawed at all four women. He left nothing out. So I experienced the most harmonious moments at school. As a result, I became a good pupil, raising all kinds of hopes ("He'll be a teacher" - my mother) and ("He'll be a member of the SP government council" - my father), hopes that were thwarted by my first lover and chemistry tutor before I finished school.
The tutoring lessons were crammed through in a new area. I loved my grades - and the Matura fell through. After all, I then attended Switzerland's first journalism school at what was then the Basler National-Zeitung. And I impressed the people in charge so much that they immediately hired me for the business desk. IMAGINE THAT: -minu and numbers. The catastrophe was inevitable. When I then even had to edit the stock markets and change the boring tendencies into
minuistic, cheerful two-liners - such as:
"If La Roche also falls into the hole, we'll buy the stock!" or "Bankverein is not at all fine (tomorrow should be better)".
THE KICK-OUT WAS JUST A FRAGE OF TIME.
I planned ahead - and published the first gossip column in the Swiss press. It was in the National-Zeitung in 1969. The column was such a hit that the publisher couldn't afford to fire Helvetia's first gossip columnist, for whom Hans Geisen had drawn the legendary Elsa picture.
SO I STAYED IN THE WORLD AS A WRITER.
Thanks to the gossip.
