When I recorded that Ich habe es gemacht I was on the edge of the campus of a — the? — universität in Stuttgart, heading into a forest because it looked on my phone map like maybe there was a shortcut to Cedar’s hotel if I got off the S bahn two stops before the directions said to, which seemed like a good idea since it was 23h25 and I didn’t want to wait for the bus and definitely wasn’t going to spring for a cab.
For the record, I think one of my really best qualities is how I’m not necessarily bound by what conventional wisdom or some other unexamined authority suggests…but this shortcut through the forest was a bad decision. Like, I don’t even want to tell my brother about it. Everything eventually was fine, but along the way there were many points when I was just like, Wow, this is legitimately dangerous, and a pretty stupid position to have put myself in. Like. I am due a small adventurer demotion and/or a fistful of demerits, for reckless behavior.
