1Q84 - Haruki Marukami

tags: personal 

"Tamaru cleared his throat. “By the way, do you know the story about the vegetarian cat who met up with the rat?”
“Never heard of that one.”
“Would you like to?”
“Very much.”
“A cat met up with a big male rat in the attic and chased him into a corner. The rat, trembling, said, ‘Please don’t eat me, Mr.Cat. I have to go back to my family. I have hungry children waiting for me. Please let me go.’ The cat said, ‘Don’t worry. I won’t eat you. To tell you the truth, I can’t say this too loudly, but I’m a vegetarian cat!’ The rat said ‘Oh, what a wonderful day! What a lucky rat I am to meet up with a vegetarian cat!’
But the very next second, the cat pounced on the rat, held him down with his claws, and sank his sharp teeth into rat’s throat. With his last painful breath, the rat asked him, ‘But Mr. Cat, didn’t you say you’re a vegetarian and don’t eat meat? Why you lying to me?’ The cat licked his chops and said, ‘True, I don’t eat meat. That was no lie. I’m going to take you home in my mouth and trade you for lettuce.’”
Aomame thought about this for a moment. “What’s the point?”
“No point, really. I suddenly remembered the story when we were talking about luck before. That’s all. You can take whatever you like from it, of course."

you bend over
backwards for
them too often,

something is
bound to snap
