Haruki Murakami’s Fairy Tales

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

One day, a salaryman named Tatsuhiro receives a phone call from a stranger who calls herself Goldilocks. Her voice reminds him of a young woman named Sakura who was found murdered in a field when Tatsu was seventeen. Goldilocks tells him he must meet her at the apartment of the three bears, located in a highly populated sector of Tokyo. Tatsu packs an overnight bag for reasons he cannot explain and travels to the address. He rides an elevator down many floors and knocks on the door of the three bears, but there is no answer. He enters to find an empty room except for three chairs, three beds and three bowls of ramen on the floor.

I'm Canadian so I pronounce it "Aboot." No, I don't! I don't know any Canadian who says "aboot." Damnable lies! But I do know this Canadian is all about humour (with a U) and satire. Come by. I don't bite, or as we Canadians say, "beet."
