Thursday: Hili dialogue

March 19, 2015 • 4:26 am

It is Thursday, right? Sadly, the cold weather has returned to Chicago, and I’ve planned a trip to Boston, hoping that the gazillion feet of snow there will have melted by the beginning of April. Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, Hili is just . . . enigmatic. Does she have a schedule for hunting mice versus birds?

Hili: Thursday.
A: That’s right.
Hili: But I was planning another day of the week for today.

In Polish:
Hili: Czwartek.
Ja: Zgadza się.
Hili: Planowałam na dziś inny dzień tygodnia.

I have asked for an explanation from Malgorzata, who wrote me this:

Hili planned that it will be Friday, Saturday or Sunday. She is not pleased that this is Thursday when she wanted it to be another day of the week. She just discovered the sad reality (by checking the calendar) that it really is Thursday and she is complaining about reality. It is not that she had any plans for Friday, Saturday or Sunday. She just planned another day for this day.

  1. “Complaining about reality” seems to describe religion pretty well. I don’t like what I see and I want it to be something else, something that can only be imagined.
