Today is much better, it’s a shame, though, that the rain since early morning has been sprinkling. I’m happy, I’m so happy! Firstly, I like it very much when it rains like that in May, and secondly, it rains somehow on purpose for “Ordnungsdiensts”, who were supposed to have today a military parade in uniforms. oh! If only you, diary, could know how these uniforms look like! They are brown and yellow! Disgusting!
