Professor K Ruminates on Everything, Including Anne Frank

Guess there isn’t much to do in Kun Chong Prison, which is why Professor K allows his mind to roam hither and thither.

For instance, he remembers the time a Chinese colleague asked him if he could offer up the names of exceptionally “angry” students. Actually, the colleague put it this way: “Do you have any students I can use?”

Then Professor K’s mind goes back through the mists of time. There was one student. Her name was Queena.

  • Queena reminded me of Anne Frank. Those shadowy eyes, the pointed chin, the puerile lips, the little cogs turning behind the face. As for the iconic photos of our most famous girl in hiding, I remember gazing at them as a boy and wishing Anne were prettier. Even then I knew it was a shameful and stupid thought, but I couldn’t help feeling sorry for her, that she wasn’t better looking. I couldn’t help wanting to fall in love with her and feeling that my failure to get the hots for Anne was somehow a failure to love the humanity we were all instructed to love.

Self finds this very, very funny. Apologies.
