Conversation Stopper (Lia)

“I once lost a dog because it couldn’t take lying on cold tiles. Right to the end, I didn’t want to believe it would die because of something so banal. The dog was just too small. Now I bring a blanket where ever I go for my dog to lie on.”

Conversation overheard in a resturant in Pommerby, northern Germany. One of many dog stories exhanged between two middle-aged couples at the neighbouring table.

    Lady Fi, the story really did stop the conversation, an awkward pause that carried on for a long time. Everyone at the table decided that they had to read the restaurant menu very slowly and quietly. Was very odd indeed.
