The Tourist

Yesterday evening I was walking to the subway station with my friend Jenifer, and some people asked for help to find the Opera, in English. I came back from Japan six month ago, and I don't remember of any opportunity to speak English since that time. I read books and stuff in English, I listen to people speaking English all day long at work, I watch movies in English, I mean, I still have to improve a lot, but I understand English quite well. But understanding and speaking are two different things, and at the moment, I was afraid of being unable to find my words, I thought I would need too much time to make a sentence... And I was so surprised and pleased when I spoke, for words came by themselves.
I miss that, and I can't get rid of this anguish so far.

This comes with the return of the killer tomatoes...
