The perseverance of a goat

In Kabul, getting a new TV to work isn’t easy, writes Deborah Rodriguez in her novel The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul.

“It had taken three weeks, a new satellite dish on the roof, three friends to help run the wires, countless trips to the electronics and hardware stores and several prayers to Allah that Ahmet wouldn’t miss the entire football season.”

But, finally, it worked and it was “a beautiful thing,” Ahmet decided. “The TV brought more customers into the café and Ahmet felt new respect for Sunny. Here was a woman unafraid of hard work, one with the perseverance of a goat that banged its head against the fence in the hopes of getting to the other side.”

Sometimes “the perseverance of a goat” pays off.
