Sensitive Wijfstrand was surprised to be addressed directly by a well-known journalist on Thursday with the words: “I remember you clearly!”
Joy of reunion. A joy of reunion that did not at first end up with what Wijfstrand had hoped for: That he would be in the newspaper with his portrait and all.
Wijfstrand looks down in his cocoa, crestfallen.
“It’s disappointing. Now that I think about it, it was a rude thing to say, him being so famous. It’s almost like saying: You’ve been found out! or You’re crazy without knowing it! or It takes only five seconds to see you through.”
Cheer up, Sensitive Wijfstrand, now you’re in The Other Newspaper.
“Am I in The Other Newspaper?”
Wijfstrand is clearly encouraged and flings his arms.
The Others Newspapers employee brushes his sleeves.
