In the morning, while waiting for the bus,
like to imagine having a conversation with the people around me.
"Good morning, lady with the dog under her coat."
- "Why hello! Well, my dog, which is probably called Foofoo,
gets cold so easily these days."
"Indeed it's quite chilly. And the days are getting longer."
- "That's so true. It's getting harder and harder to get out
of bed. If it weren't for my dog here, which I might as well call
Foofoo, I wouldn't be up at all."
"I couldn't even stay in bed because of the cold. That's why
I'm off to buy a new blanket."
- "You're looking quite tired, if I may say so.�
much. Each time I woke up extremely thirsty, but instead of getting
up and having some water, I went back to sleep and dreamt of having
- "How odd."
"Has that ever happened to you?�
There I stood, pondering at the bus stop. Staring at the lady and
Foofoo, who repeatedly licked his nose. "Is anything the matter?"
she asked all of a sudden. The sound of her voice surprised me,
even though it sounded as warm as I had imagined. "No, nothing,"
I replied, after which I started to walk back and forth, still wondering
whether the lady ever had those dreams. But I couldn't imagine her
reply. How annoying to be interrupted like that!
