So Weirdo and Cranky went to this shitty, sorry, I mean cheap food joint earlier. Normally I would just sit on a chair and mind my own business while they gobbled up the fatty-spicy stuff they like to eat. But this place didn’t have chairs, just stools. And, I must confess that stools give me the creeps. Nothing to hold on to… Not my kind of stuff.
You’d expect they’d move to another place, but they just sat down and Cranky put me down on her lap, and they ordered away. In came a big banana leaf full of really colorful stuff. I just wanted to get the feel of the pancake-type thing in the middle, but I must have accidentally grabbed the banana leaf and pulled it towards the edge of the table.
Like a snake! A woman jumped out of the kitchen and caught it before it fell. She must have been paying attention already. More than Cranky, that’s for sure. But then, that’s when it gets nasty. She starts blabbering something in Tamil, holding out her hands like she wants to take me away. And what do Weirdo and Cranky do, they hand me out to her! And there I go, taken away to a dark place by a strange woman, Weirdo and Cranky in the background waving goodbye. I was so shocked that I forgot to scream.
In the kitchen, there were several other women like the one. They took me out of sight and I thought I had seen those two suckers for the last time.
Turns out they just wanted to play with me. They were very nice. It was actually nice to be away from those two for a moment. But still, you’d think they would be a bit more careful with me…
