As you might be able to imagine I had a very pleasant time between Christmas and New Year's Day.
Example: While I'd be busy with one of my gifts – a mortar – Tetrapilotomos would read to me out of his present: “Nietzsche für Boshafte”; in English the title might read “Nietzsche for malicious (readers)”.
Well, today, I was just extremely busy with preparing a Rucola pesto, out of the blue I heard my closest friend saying, his voice maliciously purring:
”By the way, Sean, may I congratulate you and your comrades-without-arms on your exorbitant blogospheric triumph in 2007, and may I ask what country's people you are going to freeing this year?”
And when I turned round, my brows forming a question mark:
“Last year you freed Burma, didn’t you?”
My right hand clasping the vessel I was just about saying something like ”And this is a mortar, and you are a mortal”, but in this moment Tetrapilotomos smiled:
”No offence, Sean! Just a tiny piece of sarcasm. Read this."
The rest was silence.
