When I’m not home I’ll walk 3km in the rain to get a good lunch. The bread makes it worth it, you can’t get bread like this back home. We taint everything with sugar.
I wouldn’t walk this far in the rain at home, or in the sun for that matter. I would get in my car, pop over to the restaurant just a few blocks away, and park. I do a lot of things I would never do at home.
Last time I was here I propositioned the guy behind the ice cream counter to get a beer when he was closed for the night. Oh that white night. Beer; to car make out; to being cased after by him when we parted ways and I dropped my scarf——being away becomes the thing of movies. Things just happen when I am away from home.
I lived another movie once, but I can’t talk about that here. Its still the story to be savored over wine with pause. Of course it happened when I was away from home.
When I am away from home I will talk to strangers at the bar, I will either say more or say less than I usually would.
All this when I am away from home.
