It’s been 12 years since I’ve seen you in full swing. And, I don’t mean to be rude but I haven’t missed you. So forgive me if I don’t seem all that excited to see you. I remember the joy and the pain you caused me the first seven years we spent together. I remember the struggle to gather the motivation just to get up and walk through your debilitating arguments.
I remember the chaos you would bring every time you showed your face. Schools would have to closed and services would slow down because of you. A lot of people were hurt or sent to the morgue because of you. Lol, you remember that time in 2004 when I was driving to work on the highway? And I lost control of my car and almost crashed into the truck driver that was parked on the side of the highway?
Huh, remember that? At that moment I was sure I was gonna die on that highway because of you. But through panicked quick thinking I was able to steer the car from a one-on-one battle with a semi truck. At that moment I decided I would get as far from you as possible. Yes, since moving to Europe you have occasionally paid me a visit. How you managed to find me is a complete mystery.
Now yesterday and today you have shown yourself in all your glory. Most people in Berlin have never seen you so furious. But I still remember the damage you can cause when you are angry. Anyway, I heard you have been out East towards Russia and now you are leaving. I heard you are in a hurry and you have your sights set on a new destination. What are you running from? Why can’t you ever be subtle? Where ever you go you always have to make a show of things.
