Da wird also heute niemand darum rumkommen. Irischen Whiskey und gebratene Nierchen (oder andere Innereien). Für die Nicht-Joycianer sollte es dann zumindest also schon Tee und ein Gorgonzola-Sandwich sein.

Have you a cheese sandwich?

—Yes, sir.

Like a few olives too if they had them. Italian I prefer. Good glass of burgundy take away that. Lubricate. A nice salad, cool as a cucumber, Tom Kernan can dress. Puts gusto into it. Pure olive oil.

—Wife well?

—Quite well, thanks … A cheese sandwich, then. Gorgonzola, have you?—Yes, sir.

-Mustard, sir?

-Thank you.

Habe ich eigentlich schon erwähnt, dass die Lektüre des Ulysses ein ‚muss‘ ist. Ich helf‘ auch gerne.
