Something to Eat

“It sometimes happens that one passes a third-class refreshment room and sees a cold fish, cooked long before, and wonders carelessly who wants that unappetising fish. And yet undoubtedly that fish is wanted, and will be eaten, and there are people who will think it nice.”
Letter of Anton Chekhov to Suvorin (Melihovo, August 15, 1894)
