The barbecue evening
The mobile phone vibrated and vibrated. So slowly I had to answer it even though I hardly felt like it after the night shift. It seemed to be urgent, as penetrating and persistent as the mobile phone answered. "Yes, hello?" "It's me, Manfred! Hmma, tomorrow there will be a barbecue! The weather is fine, I know the season "okay, but why are you calling me? I'd love to come, but it's tomorrow night "My car's in the shop. I need a ride." "all right, I'll pick you up in an hour!"
No sooner said than done. So we drove off and worked through the list, first the beer crates, then to the hardware store to get the coal and the lighters. And then we went to the butcher shop. I wanted to drive him home, but Manfred intervened. "No, we still have to go." "what should be missing? The grill?" I joked. "That's right, I broke mine. Let me put it this way: unfortunate circumstances. I wanted to grill something sweet. Smelled really good, but the grill was gone, so we went and bought another grill, the latest thing. Now I wanted to put him down but Manni again hesitantly intervened. "You know, the Elfie always says that a perfume would do me good. And I like crickets, but I'm also a little sweet tooth. You're on one of those platforms on the internet. Can't you recommend something? So barbecue, but sweet. Like when I broke my old grill. Like grilled caramel, grilled sugar, got something? Thinking for a moment, I answered: "I'll give you some Lattafa - Raghba Wood Intense. That fits."
No sooner said than done. My buddy Manfred served and then the day after served all sorts of things from the grill and winked at the ladies - self-confident, as he was now thanks to the perfume and the added drinks. At the end of the evening, we both drank a bottle of beer together, he started the monologue. Content: Raghba Wood Intense, where he apparently had read some things. "Bomb thing you gave me there! I first smell like fresh liquorice factory, that's where the sweet guaiac wood comes into play", he looked at me with an omniscient look, "and as if it wasn't already a great box, then comes the caramel with the incense! Just like when I put the caramels on the grill. I smell like smoked candy! The Elfie says really good, to eat!"
He did, although it's not important how he got his kicks. But there was another, slightly sweaty note that I knew all too well about the perfume because of the ingredients. "sprayed you good, too, huh? Couple of sprayers too much?", I asked. "Nah, just one sprayer."
I casually nodded and watched as I emptied my beer
