After a night of catching up with old friends, I went back to the flat I was renting for the summer in Ahrensburg, Germany feeling like a labrador in a park full of French Poodles. My stomach was full with frikadellen and a few glasses of Höhler. As soon as I walked into my abode, I laid myself in bed and instantly found myself in another place. I was walking along a beach I had never visited before. Everybody within talking distance was recognizing me and coming up to ask if I had been to the show yet. Not knowing who these people were and what show they were talking about, I went along and said that I had not, but planned on seeing it soon. They did not accept this answer and told me to follow them. We instantly were making our way down a cobblestone street. The street was crowded with hundreds of people walking in the same direction. They all were looking back at me as they passed. Even though I had never seen any of these people before, every one of them would tell me how happy they were to see me again. At the blink of an eye, I was surrounded by thousands of people in an outdoor music venue. There was a stage in the distance occupied by one man and his music equipment. The sounds coming in my direction felt like they were transmitted from the stars. Soon, I found myself floating above the crowd. I could see the faces of the countless people in attendance. They were all looking at me and smiling. I was levitating slowly towards the direction of the stage, while every person I passed thanked me for joining them. The stage got closer and the music coming from it got louder. Right before I approached the stage, I found myself laying in bed in my flat, not knowing where I was. It was only after a few minutes I was able to regain my grasp on reality.
