PRAGUE DAYS

1
When K woke up he found his eyes either side of his nose, his nose dead centre and his mouth under it. It was unsettling.
2
Someone must have been telling lies about K. The telephone rang. None of his telephones had ever done that.
3
When K went to bed he had two legs. When he woke in the morning he still had two. Bureaucracy had much to answer for.
4
The dog in the kennel suddenly barked like a dog. Why so like a dog, K wondered.
5
The clothes in his wardrobe fitted him perfectly. This is deeply disturbing, thought K. He counted his arms again.
6
When K looked in the mirror he found a face very like his own looking back at him. It gave him such a fright he quickly removed his head.
7
K’s voice rose from the back of his own throat. That was not where he had left it. It must have been hiding again.
8
K was a perfectly happy insect until one day he woke as a man so he put on his trousers and got on with life as best he could.
9
K’s office contained a desk at which he was obliged to work. But this was a desk with drawers and a typewriter. Something was wrong.
10
If this is Tuesday, it can’t be Monday, thought K. But then he thought better of it.
