You have to have Stories to tell

“I should have told her everything. Mom loves these kind of stories.

 

It’s not so bad if you think about it. It could have been worse. Just think how bad things turned out for that guy who had to go to Boston to get a new kidney. He became famous and was in all the papers, but died just the same. And think about Laika, that space dog. They put her in a Sputnik and sent her into space. To find out how she was doing they bolted wires to her heart and brain. I don’t think she was doing all that well. For five months she spun around up there, until her doggy bag was empty. She starved to death. It’s important to have stuff like that to compare with.

 

I should have told her everything, while she still had her strength.

 

Stories from life, that’s my mom’s favourite thing. She collects them. You have to have stories to tell.”

My Life as a Dog by Reidar Jönsson, Lasse Hallström, Brasse Brännström, Per Berglund
