The Limits of Empathy

Oilpan Bellpepper went on a fast soon after his cat died. His friends, believing Oilpan was causing himself harm, brought over all his favorite foods. Oilpan was polite, but firm. No food, he told them. I need quiet and meditative space. Food would only be a distraction. Oilpan’s friends were disappointed. They took all the dishes back to their own houses and ate them for dinner. The next day they brought water to Oilpan’s house. He accepted the water and thanked them for their kindness. I hope you enjoyed your meals, he said. I hope you found what you wanted.

Nice one! Just found your site via Iampaperbag. Looking forward to more.
