All Alone

I showed German colleagues a photo of Klara.

“She’s so little!” they exclaimed and gave me censorious looks. “And you left her ALONE? At this age??”

It sounded as if I had left her alone in a forest full of AfD voters.

  1. Ha, the Germans should talk! When I lived in Germany in the early 1980s, German parents took their dogs more places than their children. They’d fed their children at home, then the parents would go out to a restaurant with the family dog and leave the kids at home with an older relative.
