The narrator describes her routine with Jorg, how he would order them food and watch television with her, and then “leave the house again,” and how she would be in bed by the time he gets back (page 22). From this we get the sense that the narrator has fallen into her familiar pattern of pretending nothing that happens is actually happening to her. She describes her life from a distance, as if she is a character in a movie.
However, one day while doing this she sees some scissors on a desk and decides to act. The scissors are described in great detail, and in a very strange manner as well. Not only are they “long” and “narrow”, but there are “two angular little men” standing atop the blades (page 22). The narrator then becomes suddenly unsure of who she is sleeping with, describing him not as Jorg but as “a man whose name was probably Jorg” (page 22). She is starting to lose track of reality, and cannot be certain of anything any more.
