Computer and onion

Computer and onion





"I have no regrets if I die now."

"Why do you want to die now?"

"Out of happiness."

"What has happened here for you to rejoice?"

"Weren't you reading my poem on the computer?"


"Didn't torrents of tears flow from your eyes when you were reading?"


"I didn't think that my poem would have been such a success."

"What success? When I look at the computer for some time, tears start flowing from my eyes just as I cry when cutting an onion."

She laughed heartily.

He could not laugh.
