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.
Someone must have been telling lies about K. The telephone rang. None of his telephones had ever done that.
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.
