Good morning on a hump day: Wednesday, November 4, 2020. This is late because I just got into work (I pride myself on not missing work). Today’s Hili dialogue will be a short one, for I was out all day yesterday and didn’t get to prepare it (I do most of it the preparation the day before). You’ll have to be satisfied with Miss Hili and some stats, but I’ll put up a post about the election and my surgery soon. Remember, this short format is how the Hili dialogues began: there was just a dialogue, and then things got out of control. (I’lll resume the usual format tomorrow.)
News of the Day: The news is, of course, the unresolved election, which I’ll post about next so you all can kvetch and worry, as I am doing. I’m far more concerned about the election than my belly pain, which is minimal anyway. The possibility of four more years of Trump causes far more pain, but I still think Biden will win. More soon.
Finally, today’s reported Covid-19 death toll in the U.S. is 232,607, a big increase of about 1,200 from yesterday’s figure. The world death toll is 1,222,759 1,212,500, another big increase of about 10,300 over yesterday’s report.
Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, Hili doesn’t want to get up until breakfast:
Hili: Make yourself coffee and fill my bowls. I will come soon.Andrzej: Good, sleep a moment longer.
Hili: Zrób sobie kawę i napełnij moje miseczki, ja zaraz przyjdę.
Ja: Dobrze, pośpij jeszcze chwilę.
