The woman and her friend, a receptionist from work, went out to see the strippers in Sopot. They watched the show, danced, drank too much, then went out and ate half a chicken each. Then at three in the morning they walked out on to the pier, where a big baby cormorant was sitting alone on a bench, sick or abandoned or just waiting for mama to come back with food. They sat next to it and stroked its feathers. All this I heard while I stroked her back this morning and then left her to sleep it off.
