Gruffly moving the basket out of the way, toppling it over causing everything to tumble out and away, far away. He wanted to be far away, but everything was here: the war, family, dictatorship. Yet there was nothing, nothing to possible hold me back from leaving. Picking up the next sheet, folding it this way and that into a neat and perfect triangle before starting on the next sheet. My wife, she likes triangle better then squares, says she gets more in the drawer that way. What would I know? Snatching the last sheet from the pile, I growl as it slips from my fingers and contaminates the floor, I bend to pick it up feeling every done in my back crack and crinkle as I pick up the sheet and begin folding it. Hypocrite. It’s like the sheet doesn’t want to be folded, its disobeying nature should be tarnished. Finally it is folded, now I can go and rest, tomorrow is going to be a big day.
