Feeling a little better, and the week’s serious work over, I have been attempting to lay back, with little success, though the days are already as hot as August in English.
Went to the Park Cafe in Riegrovy Sady, where I plan to spend a good deal of the summer. Queued for ten minutes to get a beer. There wasn’t anyone there so I was just going to sit and read and enjoy the sun. At the head of the line I was about to order when a wasp landed on my face and then just wouldn’t go away. I tried moving, shifting around, hoping it would move on to somebody else. I hate wasps. Eventually I had to just walk out of the queue and lose my place. There was no chance of rejoining – the two teenage girls who had taken my place were still laughing at me. I walked out of the park and towards Zizkov, narrowly avoiding kicking a little dog on the way.
To make up for it I decided to get some french fries to take away from U Houdku, like I do every other day or so. There was a new guy working there, so:
“Excuse me, can I get french fries to take away?”
I am sitting inside, in the cold, drinking filter coffee.
