I take the bus in the morning and I go to the city for the day. I eat in a restaurant I like and I go to the cinema.
I buy the cinema’s ticket three hours before the beginning of the movie and I go to eat.
So, I’m in the restaurant’s toilet and pulling up my zip on my pants, when it breaks. I try to fix it but I can’t. The solution to the problem is to hitch up my trousers and fasten them around my waist so people won’t see that my zip is broken. Doing this is a little inconvenient and now it looks like the trousers are too short for me.
A bad thing about a broken zip is that it is freezing and I feel the cold on my legs and between my legs as well.
I’m going to the cinema and I can’t get in, I thought it was because of the zip or because my trousers were short. But no, it was because I was two hours early. I thought it was the right time, I’m sure I asked the girl behind the desk for a 5 o’clock ticket and not a 7 o´clock one as the ticket said.  I’m trying to persuade the girl to let me in at 5, I have a ticket anyway, but she doesn’t let me in. As a last resort, I think; show her the broken zip, but in the end I didn’t do it. From 5 to 6:30 I walk through the city and I get colder between my legs.
At 6.30 I’m waiting in the cinema’s hall. A girl looks at me and she is coming towards me. What does she want? Maybe it is because of the zip.
She asks me if I’m Richard.
“What?” I ask her.
“Are you Richard?” She asks me again.
“No”, I answer
“Sorry”, she says and she goes away.
Thinking about what happened. I could have said that I was Richard and watched the movie with her.
But, what if I said yes and then Richard appeared? We would have a fight about who is the real Richard. A reasonable solution is that she would choose the real Richard.
The next time a girl asks me if I am another person I will say yes, just to see what happens
A broken zip is a bad thing to have on a cold winter day.
