Whatchamacallit 180: Berliner Luft (part 2)

Berliner Luft

In July I wrote about Berliner Luft, the soap bubbles.

Now it is about Berliner Luft, a peppermint liquor that is best not drunken.

However, 2.5 years ago I bought this bottle to celebrate the fact that I’d purchased some “Berliner Luft,” as in a few cubic meters of air high in the sky.

Today, that air is surrounded by concrete, wood, windows, and all the other accoutrements that define a space that becomes home.

Today, I move house.

When I bought the bottle, I did a series of shots with colleagues and friends to celebrate the fact that I’d bought the idea of a home. Since then, I do believe that I haven’t had another sip.

Prost!


During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
