Prime Minister Discovers Ball of Cotton


“Please delete the sentence I just uttered from the final version of this interview.”

What about that one?

“Just leave it as it is. Haha.”

Philip is Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Denmark and has chosen to be anonymous. The female journalist invited to interview him before me points out that the new sentence will be out of context. The Prime Minister puts his head flat down against the coffee table. A glass of water falls over. The official comes forward and rounds off and The Other Newspaper’s correspondent sits down opposite the head of government.

»Splendid! Have you brought that for me?”

The prime minister points to a big ball of cotton, which has lost it’s way and landed on my shoulder.
