At the Flea Market
- Finding some nice toys for the Superlon [nearly ready].
- Keeping my jacket on my arm.
- Having a conversation with an another customer.
Lady customer: I saw that first.
Lady customer: The jacket. I saw it first.
Me: No, it's mine.
Lady customer: I saw it. I want it.
Me: No, it really is mine. I'm wearing it. I have bought it already from the shop. It is not for sale.

- She is pushing me towards the table.

Coming out from the shop

- Carrying two huge shopping bags, one handbag, one canvas bag (15 books inside) and a packet of dog food (10 kg).

- Hitting my tail to the asphalt.
The setting: a home in the 4th floor. No lift.
- Carrying up everything previously mentioned and two fighting kids.
- My leg is hurting.

In the kitchen
- Boiling some potatoes.
- The odd, naughty potatoes don't get boiled.
- Offering Mr. Fox some nonboiled potatoes.
- Having a massive scene by myself.
- Shouting: Boil your own potatoes!
I'm going to the bed now.
