Jutta Richter, "ich bin hier bloß das Kind", Lesung im Rahmen des Eifel-Literaturfestivals 2018
Actually adults have no clue. But they all act like smartypants. That’s so annoying. Do you really have to just accept it?
Mom is such a know-it-all, it drives me nuts! Just as getting up early for school and this endless smooching between my mom and Eberhard! Imagine that – or better don’t, it’s simply ‘eww’! And then there’s granny. She does a lot of strange things, too, like getting stuck under the couch just when the cat is giving birth there. Eberhard had to come and pull her out. Unbelievable! And then Mom says: Don’t get so annoyed, some day you’ll move out anyway. Excuse me? I really don’t get it. There’s absolutely no reason for that. It’s great at home, warm and nice. I’m not going to listen to this. But I can’t change anything anyway, because I’m just the child here.
