collins: not worthy of belgian beer
it's really nice that the ballet dancer ainara, for whom i printed a dvd of a performance i filmed, tonight brought me a pile of belgian beer to compensate me for my trouble. she clearly went out of her way to get it too. this makes me feel like i did something special for her, worthy of belgian beer.
in case you dunnno. belgian beer is much more of a serious affair than beer on planet earth. it looks all fancy. there's a metal cap covering a cork, with a twisty wire to make sure the cork can't get off until the person holding the bottle is somehow ... deserving. also the bottles themselves are a bit more shapely, not like just any old beer bottles.
maybe i should ask the woman i love to come with me sometime to belgium. we both have friends there after all. and remember, micheline's mom lives in brugge, where that famous movie about brugge was made.
but man. when somebody deliberately gives you a shitpile of belgian beer, it makes you feel somehow responsible, like you're supposed to drink importantly.
then again. ik ben collins, toch? when did i ever drink unimportantly?
maybe the woman i love could answer that one too.
