You All Know them.... That one time......... at 10am on a Sunday.................
You don't know how they got there or where they were going, or how they actually get through life at all for that matter! LOL
You happened to cross paths and meet under random circumstances, but here they were, and not for the first time, telling you stories out of their life that seemed outrageous and plain day to day occurrences all at once; how they got their kids to school this morning while high on dust, how they got arrested last weekend and missed all the dope daytime parties, how they had a fight with their partner that ended in a knife chase through Kreuzberg till 4am, how they'd had the same partner as their college sweetheart did, in this weird place called VeeGay that everyone around here seems to have resided in at some point, but as I'm being told, has nothing to do with a Vagina, weird coincidence. I've got no clue where or what this ominous place really is.
You don't know how they get away with it all, but they do.It's a walking Miracle, really.
You keep running into them when you least expect it, in weird corners at random times, when you don't know if it's the K eating your brain or your brain eating the Katjes anymore, they appear out of nowhere, like a Genie, to share and sprinkle some of their lovely fairy dust upon me and enliven my spirit into a whole new lifecycle. I couldn't quite tell, if they were a wise 24 year old or a youthful 42 year old, I still don't know. We often headed home way after our friends had already left hours or days ago, lol.
They kept doing this weird thing where they kept telling me I had a pig, and I told them no, I didn't own a pig, where would I keep a pig for gods sake?? But they'd say "No, you don't get it. You got a pig, you got a pig! We both got pigs. Get it?" Every Time! And I certainly didn't get it.
But whatever, point being that in the end they gave me this pig purse when we said goodbye and said "See? Now you got pig" and I will never forget that. With this little suede pig bag I will always have their spirit with me to cheer me up on a rainy day.
I just hope some of their luck rubs off on me as well and I get to wander through life half as gracefully and lighthearted.
Thank you Piggy Pal and Aufwiedersehen!
.......which means until next time.
PS: Yes Mom, I know, you love this! No need to text me that you texted me that you emailed me that you love this. I already know. And yes, I'll get you one, promise!
