Sometimes, during long nights in here, I get to thinking about how my mom loved Oktoberfest. I never saw her drink a beer back home, but when we moved to Germany, my dad took us out to the festival near the base at Ramstein, where they really do it up. They got wine, beer, brats. They even got polka music up in there. Mom loved it so much she made my pops wear one of those hats and she got one of those funny dresses that looks like a sexy maid outfit. And she looked good, too. All those white-ass German dudes checking her out were like, "Damn, look at this fine African lady. Can I touch your hair?" Lucky for them my mom didn't understand German. And 'cause it's legal for kids to drink there, she let me have a beer even though I was only fourteen. She always cared about following the law more than I did. -Poussey Washington
