deutschFast wär ich ihm über die Füsse gelaufen, beim Soweto Marathon. Er fragte mich, ob denn alles ok sei, es seinen immerhin noch 5 Berge vor uns. “Timothy, ich heiße Timothy.” “Norbert” schnaufte ich ihm entgegen.
“Hä” sagte er, “hä?” “Mein Name ist Norbert. Nor-Bert, wie No-Bird, wie wenn im Himmel kein Vogel ist, No Bird.”
Eine halbe Stunde später hatte ich ihn wieder eingeholt, noch vier Berge vor uns. “Hallo Timothey”, diesemal lächelte ich. Timothy schaute konfus. “Ich kenne Deinen Namen, ich kenne Deinen Namen” und er fasste sich an die Stirn. “Hallo Nobody!”

englishTaking part in the Soweto marathon I nearly run into this guy. He asked me whether everything is fine, now that we have to pass five more hills. ‘Timothy’ he said, ‘my name is Timothy.’ ‘Norbert’ was my hard breathing reply.
‘Hä’ he said, ‘hä?’. ‘My name is norbert, you know, Norbert, like No Bird. Like in the sky there is no bird.’
Half an our later I caught up with Timothy again, another four hills to go. ‘Hey Timothy’ I passed by. He looked at me, puzzled. ‘I know your name, I know your name.’ He touched his forefront. ‘Hallo nobody’.
