In the building squad there were only three girls in MIFI (and eighty-four boys), and the work was hard. Anya, a refined, exalted young lady, was fond of playing the piano and tried not to lift anything heavier than a half kilogram - so that her hand would not tremble. But is it possible to show that you can not do something? As a result, Anya shoveled concrete for two days. But on the third day I could not take a shovel - my hands would come off.
