You're angry.

Here, man.

And don't you lose it.

lt's Japanese, totally automatic.

to repair this handle.

Writing to me?

l felt like writing to you.

- l'm hungry.

- l've got what you like.

l'm a bastard.


Old and selfish.


l'm blocking you.

Because of me,

you can't see who you like.

Why? Don't l look happy?

Open the drawer.

Thank you.

lt's beautiful.

Hello, darling.

l want your frank opinion.

The policemen are talking

of striking.

What do you think?

lsn't it a bit much?

Well, a few months to retirement.


We have to reply

about the holiday house.

l like it.

Have you talked to Silvia about it?

No, not yet.

Writing to you again?

But l like her.

No one would've done
