You well know George why I couldn’t bring you with me to Prague for Christmas. So stop sulking. With your delicate legs, you’d have broken that neck of yours on the icy cobblestones. Anyway, as the New Year approached, even the easy-going Czechs mentioned resolutions. I thought as I do every year that I could eat more vegetables, meditate to calm my nerves, lose a few kilos, and read a book every week. Vegetables? Meditate? Kilos? I gained a few kilos—Prague ones. However, I did read a book of three plays by Václav Havel.
