Conversation with houseguest about the internet

July 4, 2009

Never take too much delight in unfettered internet access in the ‘third world,’ because sooner or later it will be fettered, like in the past 72 hours, and you will wear a sour disposition.

S/S: Please pray before you go to bed — pray to whatever you believe in, the pagan gods, Zeus or Iemanjá — that my internet connection returns in the morning.

Houseguest: OK.

S/S: No, seriously, I’m not being clever, do some sort of prayer.

Houseguest: For me the internet is already magic, so prayer makes sense.
