A banquet in London

The London disciples arranged a banquet like the one the Governor of Agadir had given us. Ten or twelve people were sitting around each table and we were being served.

They gave me a cake with 200 candles for my 200-pound lift and started singing, “I can lift up 200 pounds.” They were singing the song so cheerfully and confidently that I began to suspect them.

I said, “You people are really great. I just wrote the song in New York and already you have learned it. When did you get in touch with Tanima?”

They said, “We didn’t get in touch with Tanima. We just changed the words to one of your old songs!”
