Today, on Saturday, July 14th, approximately at 10.30 a.m. the word has come to an end. This unfortunate event was punctuated by the loud wailing of females and children. Well, a female child, to be more precise, who interspersed her wailing with heavily punctuated screaming, "I hate you!" "Why are you my brother!" and most importantly, "GIVE ME BACK THE PILLOW AND THE DOG!!!!!"
I tried to approach her and explain that her loud screaming is more indicative of some terrible event, probably of the cataclysmic type, not really commensurate with the loss of a pillow and a stuffed dog to another family member living under the same roof with her. In between the sobs and grunts, she managed to dignify my speech with the answer. "But Mom, he also took away the elephant!!!"
Well, in that case, wail away, my child, because I had no idea it was THAT serious.
