the dogMr Nilai had never been abroad before, so his decision came at least unexpected. Yet, when Mr Wu asked him to accompany him to Switzerland, he didn’t think twice before agreeing. Of course, thinking about it in retrospect, it would have been better to enquire about the reason of that trip right away. Certainly before finding himself sitting in front of him at the restaurant and listening to him ordering, with a smile in between the innocent and the hungry, a cat fillet. Horrified, Mr Nilai rushed at him with searing words, seasoned with insults not yet sounded off. Mr Wu retorted that if his neighbor could eat a sacred (for the Indians) cow or a rabbit, then he could eat a cat. Or a dog, as far as he cared. That was before both of them were kicked out because, unwittingly, had entered into a vegetarian restaurant.

Non mangerò mai niente che abbia avuto gli occhi

Il signor Nilai non era mai stato all’estero prima, dunque la sua decisione giunse quantomeno inaspettata. Eppure, quando il signor Wu gli propose di accompagnarlo in Svizzera, non ci pensò un attimo prima di acconsentire. Certo, pensandoci poi, sarebbe stato meglio chiederne il motivo fin da subito. Certamente prima di ritrovarsi seduto di fronte a lui al ristorante e sentirlo ordinare, con un sorriso tra l’innocente e l’affamato, un filetto di gatto. Inorridito, il signor Nilai gli si scagliò contro con parole di fuoco, condite da insulti mai pronunciati. Il signor Wu rispose che se il suo vicino poteva mangiare una vacca (agli indiani) sacra o un coniglio, allora lui poteva mangiare un gatto. O un cane, per quanto importasse. Questo prima che entrambi venissero sbattuti fuori perché, senza volere, erano entrati in un ristorante vegetariano.
