She had an almost expired visa from Germany. She hated her birthday and had never had a party. On Halloween, we made a cake and she blew out the candles. It was the year of the 11 day ice storm. I had a dog walking job and we would walk there every day slipping and falling, barely making it up the stairs to take this dog out while his human was out of town.  One day we spent the whole day talking in german (mine was very choppy, high school german.) We would play basketball under the lights in the park and graffiti-ed with sidewalk chalk “queens of the court” and “girls play ball” all over. We made comics and read a few pages of the first Harry Potter in German every night before bed.  I write “her” and not out of disrespect of their current gender identity, but to tell the the story of our crush. He is now living in Finland, making furniture and rap songs.  Year:  2001
