The Insurgents at Home

“Jebiga! This place stinks. You can smell it in the lobby.”

“The Americans have a saying. You want to eat eggs, you break the shells.”

“It smells like eggs. And shit.”

“That’s the sulfur. Don’t worry. That’s all done. The range hood will clear it out.”

“What are the nails for?”

“You don’t pay attention to anything, do you?  When the pressure-cooker detonates, the screws become shrapnel. Same with the springs, though they do more damage to because they spiral.”

“I got Disney backpacks like you asked.”

“Excellent. We’ll leave them by the skating rink, where the kids all sit.”
