Inquiry Into the State of My Health by István Örkény

“Hello!”

“Hello, there!”

“How are you?”

“Very well, thank you. And you?”

“Couldn’t be better.”

“Neither could I.”

“What’s that you’re dragging behind you then? It looks just like a rope!”

“Oh, that! That’s no rope! That’s my guts!”

(From the book: One Minute Stories, translated by Judith Sollosy)
