THE BEST KIND OF DAY
cohen picked out the fruits and veggies and everyone was so sweet and were teaching us the german word for the things that we wanted and of course everyone stroked cohen's cheek and gave him samples on samples on samples and free stuff. we went to the chicken stand where there are racks of rotisserie chicken rotating and doing their thing where we got half a chicken for 2 euro. cohen basically ate the whole thing the minute we walked into the door.
on the walk home we stopped by the park and crossed over the bridge where they keep all of the birds (like there are hundreds of all different kinds of birds in these giant cages in the park, its kind of sad, but nice to look at and listen to) we talked about all kinds of things on our walk and collected leaves and twigs until we ended up at the water where we fed the ducks stale bread. that's something i could do all day long, and i think it's going to become a ritual with us. a wednesday tradition.
while we were feeding the ducks and giggling a nun stopped what she was doing and came over to watch, the look in her eyes made it seem like she was so happy to see us feed the ducks and was so happy to see cohen enjoying life. have you ever been smiled at by a nun? its the best. she made me feel like she was acknowledging that i was doing a good job with my life, with cohen, with everything, and thats exactly what i needed today.
