“Not this dream again. I don’t want it any more.”
I’m so tired of people telling me German is an “ugly, angry” language. When my German teacher tells us jokes it’s the sweetest, happiest language in the world. When I teach my father the word for daughter he smiles, repeating “Tochter” to himself until he gets it right, and in that moment German sounds like pride. There’s nothing angry or ugly about a language that never says goodbye, only “until we meet again.”
I think people who say this have only heard German as spoken by movie Nazis. It’s a beautiful language that can sound very soft and sweet. Just because BadGuy McLuftwaffe hisses and barks all those throaty fricatives and glottal stops doesn’t mean they always sound harsh. Go listen to actual German speakers and you’ll see that the stops usually add a melodious rhythm to sentences, and the fricatives are more often like gently rustling leaves than cartoonish loogie hocking. And the vowels are just plain cute.

I never really wanted this chair. I guess some part of me knew it would happen, but… I aways dreaded the weight of it. The responsibility. The truth is I can barely make the right choices for myself. I’ve been trying to take this club in a direction I thought made sense, to move us away from the outlaw shit. That hasn’t worked. I think some part of me was trying to buy back all the bad shit I’ve done. The people I’ve hurt. That’s a false pardon. It’s dangerous, and it’s selfish. JT did the same thing, and those choices took away everything from my old man. His family and his patch. I already lost the woman I love. I’m not gonna lose my club.
