Sweet And Sour
“Here’s some news from Shanghai,” Bernie says.
I perk up right away. Shanghai Gardens is one of my favorite restaurants, a tiny place in a strip mall beside Cash Your Check, which was running a scam I never really understood, and our client wasn’t really that happy in the end, although her shooting spree thing was uncalled for, Bernie said, but forget all that, the point being that that was how we got to meet Dominic Wu, chef at Shanghai Gardens. We drive up out back and he comes out with a bag of Sweet and Sour Ribs, every time! So: are we on our way?
“Seems they’re restricting dog ownership to one per family,” Bernie says.
Huh? Is this about Dominic? There are no members at all of the nation within at Shanghai Gardens.
“Zero tolerance,” Bernie says. “There are now twenty million people in Shanghai and eight hundred thousand dogs.” He looks up at me. “What if there’s something in humans that induces us to continually create problems we can’t solve?”
Meaning we’re not going to Shanghai Gardens? I go to the corner and lie down. Sigh.
