the germanatrix is moving to DC next week.
she was my best concert friend for four years and then we went to the florence + the machine concert in april 2010 and did not see each other again, though she lives maybe three train stops away.
in the last month, we have seen each other three times. we've thought each was the last and then something random has come up that we've both wanted to do so we've tacked another coda onto our goodbye.
last night, we said goodbye for reals. characteristically, this did not involve the word "goodbye" but rather a frantic run across the street to catch the #22 and enthusiastic shouts over the shoulder of hopefully someday i'll see you again!
