The difficult relationship

I was good friends with the famous Russian revolutionary, Vladimir Lenin. We got along well most of the time, unless he brought his cat, Andrei. I’m terribly allergic to cats.

Lenin knew this but would sometimes bring Andrei in tow. I would get upset, and Lenin would say that to be a member of the proletariat, one must suffer for the common good. I would argue back that when a comrade knowingly makes another suffer, he becomes a member of the bourgeoisie.

The fight would escalate until Andrei the Cat would postulate about how the demise of Utopia was inevitable as long as people were involved in trying to create it.
