40 hartu, bakar bat jan

Udareak egun bakar batean hartu eta gordetzea komeni da, banan-banan eta arreta handiz; txortenetik leunki tiratuz ia bakarrik erortzen dira eta gozo egokitzen dira esku ahurrean, txoria habian legez. Gero saskietan ipintzen dira, larregi bete barik. Ez dago udare hartu berria baino ezer gozoagorik; sarritan gaixotu naiz betekadak jota, horregatik asmatu nuen zenbatzearena: berrogei hartu, bakar bat jan.
