where is he going with this 2.JPG

I’ll have more energy soon. First, the caffeine gods must do their work – filling me with a warm liquid that disperses in my chest and spreads comfort to my back and arms and legs – sending signals to my brain to activate systems – striking the flint to set the mind on fire and … wait, maybe I will rest my eyes for a bit – too much to think about, too much to do, just rest – rest –

How does someone yada yada if they yada yada? That’s a good yada, yada, if you yada yada yada here, then yada yada yada yada – und so weiter.

A fragment of Deutsch scraped up by yada yada yada – sehr gut.
