the guy who runs the turkish market around the corner did not have masking tape for sale.
i bought two large, powerful beers. i bought cheese. i bought apfelwein from fredericksburg.
i asked him if he had any tape because i have got to paint this weekend and need to tape down some light switches and protective coverings.
after playing all kinds of cross-lingual deductive games – for i don’t know the german word for tape, nor does he speak any english – we deduced what i sought.
and he had some behind his register. he handed it to me as a gift.
that dude is awesome. if you are in erbenheim, do business with the man at the turkish market on emil-krag strasse.
the man just gave me tape. i’m willing to bet when i swing through again he might have some on the wall waiting for someone to buy, because he seems like that kind of businessman.
