He liked my lunch

We were at the neighbouring town and because of the back-to-back meetings at the mayor's office had to miss lunch. During the short break between the meetings I bought this awesome sheep's cheese pasty and thought that it was destined to be enjoyed near this lake (while I respond to my emails). But as soon as I opened my mouth to take the first bite out of it, this black fellow appeared out of nowhere, sat in front of me and started looking at the pasty for three seconds and then in my eyes for three seconds and then again at the pasty and so on.

So here he is with his pasty. Well, at least I was right, it was destined to be enjoyed at the shore of that lake. Just not by me. And he gave it his full and undivided attention not shared with some emails.


One of the most interesting things I noticed about the current political debate is that reductio ad absurdum does not work anymore. Well, it was a good run.
