По време на самолетен полет от София до Хамбург Инес се отдава на философски разсъждения относно живота и преживява дълбок душевен катарзис.Онези от вас, които знаят английски ще оценят този силно емоционален и образен текст.
How long does it last? I mean the desire to be good, forgiving and generous? The sincere craving for understanding the others, unconditional love and self-sacrifice?
Until I was seated, helplessly and terminally, on a full plane in front of a boisterously coughing creature, clearing his throat with jerky, slimy noises, which made me feel (and hope) that he might choke and die on the spot.
But since coughing attacks are not yet recognized as flight emergency, the mask remained a desired, but unattainable object.
My dreams went even further… If I only had enough money for a private jet, I could spare the above equipment.

The man got a drink and the explosive juicy grunting subsided to occasional sniffs and gulps.
Obviously he was reassured by the kind, motherly expression of the stewardess or what he could make of her professional iron mask of politeness.
She was an angel transmitting the feeling that there was nothing wrong with coughing passengers on her airline, that we were all compassionate comrades, who thankfully share whatever germs he was exuding. How I wished this to be true… How I wished to belong to this noble circle of human race, to the circle of the benevolent.
