(april 4, 2008)
this is how my day began:
i walked out of my flat and saw my askari who would topple over if you even sneezed in his direction. then i saw him giving the two guard dogs water near their dog house and remembered the guard puppy that was following him around last week.
askari who would topple over with a sneeze: fine fine
me: where is the tiny puppy?
askari who would topple over with a sneeze: dead
and that is one of the longest conversations i have had with him.
