Evening chat about ...

This time, it was me who called first. Maryla answered the phone almost immediately.

- Have you been to the walk with Colin yet?  Can we talk for a while?

- Yes. He has lied down for a nap.

Maryla’s dog is jealous of the phone chats: when she picks up the receiver, he starts to bark fiercely and tries to knock the receiver out of her hand. Sometimes, when he can’t stand her talking anymore, he goes as far as to ( as she puts it) bite her vein, and bang her thigh with his clawed paw with all his might.

- I had a dream about Ujazdów again. It’s been the third one this month.  I wonder what it means…

- And what did you dream of?

- That chimney, you know...the one with the oranges…

- And ... were the there ?

- Yes ... and you know, it was a very nice dream...the sky was blue...and the chimney was somehow cleaner than usual...

We made up the oranges for the sake of impressing and deceiving our friends, but later we almost believed they were really there...
