Today I Am…
…in Munich, Germany, home of the world’s largest Oktoberfest. I was born in and went to university in the twin cities of Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, home of the largest Oktoberfest outside of Germany.
You might think this would create some sort of deep, fundamental and spiritual bond between myself and this fair city in the south of Deutschland. In fact, there isn’t. I can’t drink more than a couple of beers before wanting to take a long nap and my experiences with the K-W Oktoberfest were consistently gross and depressing and with a high vomit quotient. Not my own. Which is actually worse.
But anyways, it’s not October so it’s all rather moot.
