Okay, I just cannot stop jumping; it’s as if my life depended on it, just keep jumping, keep smiling, forgetting about it all, just enjoying the moment, the bee’s humming, the sunny weather, the shadow of this nice little tree, what was its name again, hey, I like the way you look at me, don’t stop, it gives me power, it prevents me from giving up, feeling your look on me is almost like eating a high protein bar, I just hope this rope is as tough as I am, I bought it in that huge mall on Huaihai Lu so it should be good quality, wasn’t exactly cheap at least, well, we’ll see, and until then I just keep jumping, and smilling, and loving. Okay, I am your jolly jumper, I am giving it all, for you, forever. [Katharina Droste]
