I This Sissy Emperatriz*
3 Women (Robert Alman, 1977)

Yo tenía tres años en 1977. Hubo un incendio en el edificio de enfrente, nos sacaron a mis hermanos y a mí a la calle. Yo llevaba un gorro de lana, el pijama y creo que un albornoz con capucha. No sé si el portal de la casa en llamas, o quizá el de la lado, era la heladería, mi sabor favorito era el de pistacho o tutti-frutti. Aunque lo mejor era el cucurucho.

I was three years old in 1977. There was a fire in the building in front, they took us out, my brother, my sister and me. I was wearing a wool cap, pyjama and I think a hooded bathrobe. I don’t know whether the doorway on fire was the ice-cream parlour or the one right next to it. My favourite flavour was pistachio or tutti-frutti. The best thing was the cornet anyway.
