“I would like some coffee,” he says.
I laugh in his face, and I tell him is he crazy? – I am not going to give him coffee in his condition.
“If we have coffee, I can prove to you that I cannot die,” he says.
“How?”
“You will see,” he says, “if you make the coffee.” I see him sit up, and he leans out of the coffin and looks inside my traveling bag, and he takes out the coffee box and the paraffin burner. I tell him to lie down, for God’s sake, but he only says: “Go on, make us some coffee, Doctor, and I’ll show you.”
