dear tao

i slept for 200 hours.

when i woke up i took a bath and saw a mouse walk behind my toilet.

after my bath i broiled soybeans. i put salt on the soybeans. i ate them by putting a pod in my mouth and pulling it back out with my mouth almost closed so my teeth scraped against the pod and pushed out the beans and my tongue licked the salt off the pod.

i took the empty pods and built a fort out of them for the mouse.

his name is henri.
