Yesterday was a warm and sunny day. I went out with two friends. It was fun, but it was funny and strange as well. We went to an architect exposition and after that we didn't quite know what to do. It is strange, because normally you would know where to go especially on a sunny day. Only we were in the middle of the day in the centre of our city...
Imagine this, wandering through the streets, thinking of "What shall we do in this warm weather?" This is strange for us, since we always have a plan, till this day.
The weather makes you kind of slow, somehow. It was as if we all wanted something, but didn't want it as well. Kind of a dreamy state maybe, but still awake and understanding each other. Hmmm... Maybe not exactly like that... One wanted to watch "The Last Samurai" with his (super) doby surround sound speakers. What was possible during that day in the afternoon (not going into the why not question there)... I still want to see that movie too.
Early in the night we walked back into a supermarket. The first time was hours earlier, we bought drinks than. The second time, we walked in to buy ice cream. The crisis of choosing what to do was still hanging as a dark cloud above our heads and it was making us think, maybe to much or to logical or to much caring about the other in the sense of will he or she like the kind of ice cream? Questions about what kind of ice cream started to pop-up like mad in our minds (ok, a little bit of an exaggeration there) "Scoop ice cream? No spoon avialable... Hmm... Ice cream on a stick?" Adding the "hut hut hut", it almost sounds like three soldiers summaring all the things up for the sergeant, who asked the question: "Which kind of ice cream do you want?!"
And the sergeant shouts after my reply: "You there, drop and give me twenty." All because I couldn't come up with something better than "Hmmm".
Of course this didn't happen. We were quiet for the almost never ending ticking of minutes, what happened after thinking out loud. Luckily my friends could choose one. I wasn't there, when they decided. I didn't mind about the ice cream decission as long as it was no Magnum. It isn't that I don't like Magnum's. It was just to huge, since I wasn't hungry. Yes, ice cream can make you full. If you insist in knowing where I was... I was at the loo in a restaurant at the end of the street. If you have to go you have to go.
After all this, the dark cloud of questions leading to a silent stop in time finally left us. I'm really thankfull for that and may it not happen again. *Where is wood? I need wood to make sure it won't happen again. I can't find wood! Noooo! How can I knock on it to make sure it won't happen again?*
It was a strange day, but it was great hanging out with two good friends. Because you can be yourself, especially if you make a fool out of yourself. Tripping over your own tongue, causing a speech disorder. I was talking like a moron... That was so embarrassing... Ok, enough about yesterday.
