‘The day of cucurbitaceae’ By Viola Furlan

Our nameless protagonist goes to the supermarket to buy healthy food for his wife and her personal trainer, since he’s coming to dinner. His stream of consciousness leads the story, making him understand a few things about his life, with a main question: “what’s the singular of the word ‘cucurbitaceae’?”.
