So we just finished up the last few days of Muswiese. It was another year gone and good times were had….and I am still sick.
We left Überlingen around mid-day but it still took us a while. We got the house to drop off our stuff and the dog and then went to Muswiese.
I still felt rather sick so I warned T that I wouldn’t last very long but he was more than welcome to stay with his friends and party enough for the both of us.
I found out earlier that day that my partner in crime (Nicola) was also sick so she was unable to partake in the festivities either.
Turns out that I was there long enough to just buy a pair of pajamas (because I forgot mine in Überlingen) and have dinner.
But while we were sitting waiting for our food….I saw the craziest thing:
My nephew’s Doppelgänger
This is Jake. No offense to other gingers out there but this one is the cutest I know.
This is his German twin (I shall call him Ekaj)
For serious, I stared at this kid. It was uncanny. Also I took many photos of this kid. I wasn’t sneaky at all. HIs parents probably thought I was same weird creeper taking photos of their kid but I didn’t care.
Anyway, I went home after that and spent the evening watching Doctor Who and Victor/Victoria with my dog.
The next day, aftering getting pumped full of drugs, I felt well enough to venture back into Muswiese with T and his mom. We also took the dog with us.
Ok so Abner had a few bites.
Afterwards we walked around and did a little shopping:
Out of 11 targets, I missed only 1 and then won this little teddy. Isn’t he ever so cute?
We played some other games which didn’t show off my American awesomeness as much as shooting. Then we went to a nearby bar where I sipped some glorious Glühwein while enjoying fireworks which marked the end of the Muswiese season:
We also met up with one of Thorsten’s old co-workers (Steffen) and his girlfriend Julia and her friend Tina. They invited me to try a cherry liquor shot (we already were drinking cherry rum and they claimed that the liquor was better)
So Julia bought a round and then Tina. A little note on German culture as a woman: when you are with a group of ladies and they start buying rounds….it is common courtesy that you should, too. So I also bought a round….then they started buying more rounds. I ran out of money so I thought we were done. Until T decided to join and buy us a round and then the owner of zum Pressler came and bought us a round.
It’s a vicious cycle, ya’ll!
Then we got hungry. Unfortunately most places were closed by this time so we settled for the last of the Muswiese wurst:
Look at this thing! It’s a beast! Also Steffen decided to make a brief cameo. It was one of those meals where you eat so much that afterwards you want to sleep…..but it was not to be for the King of the Night (Marcel) had beckoned us forth.
Stay healthy out there, folks!
