  • They asked me - could you hold on to this bar for one second? Just one second or two... They promised it wasn't heavy - just a white bar, as light as a feather. They said they'll be right back - just jumping across the corner to grab a double espresso from the shop.

    200 days and counting. I can't move from here. Stuck, nailed, trying to cope with the weight of this bar. White indeed but not light. And with everybody watching all the time, I can't find an opportunity to escape.

    Such a fool
