Halleluja number one - a friend suddenly calls and invites me for dinner in two days. Halleluja number two - a friend I visit in the evening bakes bread and I can take as much as I want with me. (None of the halleluja friends is aware of my monetary restrictions.)
Day eight, I go to play badminton. I own a racket and my friend E. several shuttlecocks, but the latter I did not know and bought one, all with student discount - I happen to have such a card. Now I can not shop food until Saturday (so in seven days). The friend who invited me for dinner is forced to postpone the invitation till her voice is back.
