Scozia-Italia/Scotland-Italy

Prima di andare in università scendo a buttare la differenziata. Due odori si dividono il pianerottolo.

Dal mio appartamento proviene l’odore intenso di pane appena sfornato.

Da sotto la porta del mio vicino viene un odore fortissimo di erba, che prevalica ogni barriera fisica. Mi stupisco che dal buco della chiave non escano sbuffi di fumo.

Potremmo benissimo essere comparse del mondo di Alice. Io a cantare “un buon non compleanno” offrendo tè e pane e burro, lui a fare il brucaliffo.

Italy Vs Scotland

This morning I opened the door to take out the recycling. 

From my flat there came the sour smell of freshly baked bread.

From underneath my neighbour’s door, defeating any physical barrier, there came a strong smell of weed.

We could be roleplaying characters in Alice’s Wonderland. I would be singing “A very happy unbirthday” and offer bread-and-butterflies. He would puff out smoke like the Hookah-smoking Caterpillar.
