ik was mijn groene sjaal bijna kwijt
this evening i went to eat with pani ani. i left the house without my green scarf cuz i couldn't remember where it was. so i had to button up my coat.
we ate at the roti place on the corner of jan van galenstraat and hoofdweg. i had nasi saté. good stuff, better than roti, and cost only eur 7,50. then we walked to mercatorplein and pani took my picture there, then we had a drink at a little "brasserie berlagerie" there.
"aren't you cold? where's your scarf?"
"i dunno, i'm afraid maybe i lost it."
she walked me home and we looked around the house for my scarf. it was nowhere to be seen. but she remembered that i was wearing it last night. when she left here she inquired at het stoplicht. and guess what, they had found my green scarf at closing time. pani came back here and knocked on the door, and slipped the scarf through the mail slot. i was happy. i tried to kiss her hand through the mail slot but that didn't work.
i think what's happening is that the lining of my coat is too satiny, so if i stick my scarf in my sleeve when i go to sit down, there's a good chance it will just slip out onto the floor. and because it's so dark, i won't notice it when i leave.
a couple weeks ago i lost my old blue rain hat too, it just fell out of my pocket somewhere along the street on the way to soundgarden.
lucky i got my sjaal back. i have to stop losing things.
