Às vezes quase me acontecem coisas estranhas quando me ponho a falar sozinho is a monologue to a storyteller. A man standing alone in the desert trying to tell a story but it escapes him. Can this be a story?: one man, standing in the middle of a journey, tells a story. And sometimes, when he does, almost good things happen to him. Sometimes almost good things happen to him when he starts talking to himself.
