Plenty of people are getting back to work and asking each other, “So how was your break?”
One of Xy’s fellow teachers answered thusly:
He was taking a shower in his house in Algiers when the police kicked in his door and sent in a K-9 unit. The dog rampaged through the house, somehow got up into the attic, and then fell through the ceiling on top of the guy as he emerged from the shower. The dog then attacked the guy, biting his leg. The guy had a grip on the dog’s jaws when the police entered and told him to leave the dog alone. They were searching for a young man with dreadlocks. This teacher is middle-aged and bald.
He wanted to sue but his lawyer told him to forget it, there are so many people waiting in line to get a settlement from the police department.
I don’t know what to make of this tale. It seems so fantastic. But Xy heard it directly from the guy’s mouth. And he was walking with a cane.
So how was your break?
