Departemento 4B

Doorbell rings.

“Aren’t you gonna get that?” he says, upstairs.

Scrunchy face.

“We don’t know anyone here.”


Again, doorbell rings.

I answer the intercom, “Hola?”

“Hola… bla bla bla algo en español que no entiendo…”

“No sé.”

I quickly hang up the receiver.

“What did he say?”

“Something in Spanish I didn’t understand, so I said I don’t know and hung up.”

Scrunchy face.

“Good thing you answered the doorbell.”


“Yes, good thing.”
