Silly Monkey Stories #175 - Paranoia

(En español más abajo)
 
Canada14/Dec/2011 – Florencia (8)
 
We were cuddling with Flor in the sofa, watching TV when she said, completely out of the blue:
 
- You know what, Daddy? I think we’re being followed…
- Wha… what?!
- Yes! Every time we go to a place and it’s empty, a few minutes later there is more people in there. They are following us!
 
I told her that it couldn’t be possible, that maybe seeing all six of us inside might tempt people to go in… I even told her that our presence would make any place cool, which is why other people might want to go in as well. But she wasn’t convinced.
 
Later that day, and as we were coming back from a dance and fashion event at Santi and Carolina’s school, we made an unscheduled stop at Burger King. It was 10:15 PM on a Wednesday, so the place was obviously empty. But a few minutes later, about 10 more people (in three different groups) were sitting there as well.
 
Florencia came out of the playground, saw all these people, looked at me and said:
 
- See?
 
 
 
Argentina 14/Dic/2011 – Florencia (8)
 
Estábamos acurrucados con Flor en el sofá, mirando la tele cuando la chiquita me dijo, de manera imprevista:
 
- Sabés qué, Papi? Me parece que nos siguen…
- Có… cómo?!
- Sí! Cada vez que vamos a un lugar y está vacío, a los pocos minutos hay un montón de gente. Nos están siguiendo a nosotros!
 
Le dije que no podía ser posible, que tal vez la gente nos veía a todos nosotros adentro y se tentaban de entrar… hasta le dije que nuestra presencia hacía cualquier lugar más cool y era por eso que todos se desesperaban por entrar también. No hubo caso.
 
Esa misma noche, volvíamos de un desfile de moda y bail en la escuela de Santi y Carolina cuando terminamos haciendo una escala imprevista en Burger King. Eran las 10:15 PM de un miércoles, así que el lugar estaba desierto. Pero unos minutos más tarde, unas 10 personas (en tres grupos distintos) entraron y se sentaron a comer.
 
Florencia salió de los juegos, vio a toda esa gente, me miró y me dijo:
 
- Ves?
