“A Pleasant Afternoon” / Memorable Fancies #440

[from the Diaries of Franz Kafka, page 301: “2 August [1914]. Germany has declared war on Russia – swimming in the afternoon.”]

      Thousands dead in tsunami – had a very good tuna sandwich for lunch, plenty of mayonnaise.

      President severely wounded in brazen attack – had another tuna sandwich, went swimming. Pool to myself.

     Talks abandoned, missiles on their way here, Newsradio says. Switched to chicken salad, found tuna suddenly boring. Pool to myself again.
