It Happened One Night

  • There is a picture in this post that may be shocking.
  • A name has been changed. 
A few days ago, over lunch:
Petra: Jeremy, today Velimir Mrkić is going to come around 5:00 with some pork.  He's donating it to the youth for the New Year's party. 
Jeremy: Ok, what do I need to do?
Petra: I don't know. He just said he wanted to bring the meat here before taking it to the church.
Jeremy: Ok.

No Gospodin Mrk

No Gospodin Mrk

Petra attempts calling Mr. Mrk - no answer

We have a Skype call scheduled with my relatives in America

7:45, in the middle of our Skype call:
Mr. Mrk is at the door with a bloody baby pig.  And a friend.

After ending our conversation, running to get my keys, the keys to the church and preparing to get the car started,Velimir tells me that I can ride with him.  And he has the keys to the church.

The question of what my job was continued to run through my head.

After opening the church, Velimir takes the pig to the freezer and dumps it in next to the ice-cream. 

Velimir's friend (to me): All you have to do tomorrow is salt the pig.

Me: Ummm, I'm sorry, I have no idea how to salt a pig.

Velimir: Ok, I'll do it then.

Me: Ok.
