roofsFor an instant, the cry of the winner of the evening quiz was superimposed with that rising from the courtyard. Mr Nilai was silent, stunned by so much stereo hype. Until he could no longer resist. Fastened his belt and gone out on the balcony, he made ​​a mental note, wrapped in the threadbare and a little faded cloth of his old striped dressing-gown, of each single particle of that much intrusive condominium implosion. Completed by the appropriate comments, that mental picture would come back in “any other business” in the condo meeting called for the next Wednesday.

La vecchia vestaglia a righe

Per un istante, l’urlo del vincitore del quiz della sera si sovrappose a quello che saliva dal cortile. Il signor Nilai rimase in silenzio, stupito da tanto stereofonico clamore. Fino a che non poté più resistere. Allacciata la cintura, uscì in balcone e prese mentalmente nota, avvolto dalla stoffa lisa e un po’ stinta della sua vecchia vestaglia a righe, di ogni singola particella di quell’assai inopportuna implosione condominiale. Completata dagli opportuni commenti, quella fotografia mentale sarebbe rientrata nelle “varie ed eventuali” della riunione di condominio convocata per il mercoledì successivo.

    I am glad Mr Nilai has an old striped dressing gown. Everyone should have one.
