100 Words – The Professor

German in the best language for punk rock. Latin the best for impressing douche bags. So what’s the difference? The professor on the train knows. He reads Kakfa in Latin and looks up every third word in his Latin to German dictionary. I would think that finding Kafka in German would be as easy as finding Kafka in Latin would be difficult, but the professor soldiers on. He’s as afraid of crowds as I am, but he is passive where I am active. He stands and waits, I go upstream to the empty train, but we always end up together.
