I Thought It was Monday...

We were resting on the couch in the late morning today, watching The Invincibles, and eating salad & watermelons, when suddenly the door from the back yard was yanked open, and two armed policemen barged in with their guns drawn. We jumped up, Stella covered herself up, and I asked them, what are you doing here. They said that they responded to a 911 call that claimed there were 2 transients and a dog squatting illegally in our house. I told them ‘You’re trespassing’, they demanded to see my ID, we had some back-and-forth, after which they left apologizing for their mistake. Wow!


For some reason, I thought that today was Monday, so after a few hours, I drove to the local police station to find out who called with this report. The station looked like the one in ‘Assault On Precinct 13’, it was empty and nobody came from behind the bullet-resistant glass, when I rang the bell. It took me a few hours to realize that today is Sunday...

 Any ideas?

Someone must have been telling lies about Josef K., he knew he had done nothing wrong but, one morning, he was arrested.  Every day at eight in the morning he was brought his breakfast by  Mrs. Grubach's cook - Mrs. Grubach was his landlady - but today she didn't come.  That had never happened before.  K. waited a little while, looked from his pillow at the old woman who lived opposite and who was watching him with an inquisitiveness quite unusual for her, and finally, both hungry and disconcerted, rang the bell.  There was immediately a knock at the door and a man entered.  He had never seen the man in this house before.  He was slim but firmly built, his clothes were black and close-fitting, with many folds and pockets, buckles and buttons and a belt, all of which gave the impression of being very practical but without making it very clear what they were actually for.  "Who are you?" asked K., sitting half upright in his bed.  The man, however, ignored the question as if his arrival simply had to be accepted, and merely replied, "You rang?"  "Anna should have brought me my breakfast," said K.  He tried to work out who the man actually was, first in silence, just through observation and by thinking about it, but the man didn't stay still to be looked at for very long.  Instead he went over to the door, opened it slightly, and said to someone who was clearly standing immediately behind it.......
