1Day, When I Grow Up!

So, as usual, I wuz sittin' an' stinkin' 'bout wut I'm gonna be one day when I grow up?
I mean, these are pretty tough decisions for a fella to make?
I gotta listen to all kinda folks from the dragon-teecher at the dungeon skool to my perents an' pardnurs an' even my sister - sumtimes!
I'm only a kid an' up to now, I'm constantly gettin' all kindsa do this an' do that stuff!
The way I figure it, it's only gonna git worse, with more stuff to listen to an' more decisions to make?
Wow, I wish I culd jes finda clear line, with all the answers I need to the questions I have, an' that in the future, I'm probably gonna have?
For instance, I wuz shakin' hands with a friend of my father, an' this guy wuz squeezin' the blood outta my fingers an' didn't wanna let go!
Then he sez, "Young man, a firm strong handshake is the mark of someone with character, so you should work on that handshake of yours!"
Then he laughed an' sed "I've got some strength training equipment and if you use it for just six months, you'll have an iron grip handshake and people will feel your character in that new hand grip of yours."
So after, I got the blood runnin' in my hand again, I started thinkin', wut in the wurl does squeezin' sumbodies hand got to do with havin' character?
So first I thought I'd better look up character in the dictionary, 'cause maybe I didn't know wut this strange language word really meant?
The book sed, "The total quality of a person's behavior, as revealed in his habits of thought and expression, his attitudes and interests, actions and personal philosophy of life!"
Far out, how in the wurl kin a hand squeezin' tuga war, wrestlin' hand shake tell alla that character stuff in a few seconds?
Personally, I think this hand squeezin' stuff is jes another struggle 'tween folks to see who is on top an' who is down under!
I figure like granma tol' me, if I grow up an' behave myself like I've been taught, then this will be plenty of proof that I'm a good character person an' forget about the hand squeezin' stuff!
It's jes a game named character, I'm not gonna play!
So after all I'm findin' an' makin' my way to growin' up an' jes like granma sed,
"You're on the right track!"
Thank you granma.
All this thinkin' an' stuff is wearing me out,
So I'm gonna say
I love you

Eines Tages, wenn ich erwachsen werde!

Also, wie üblich war ich am Sitz'n und Stink'n darüba, was ich ma' werde, wenn ich groß bin?
Ich mein, das sind echt krasse Entscheidungen, die man als Junge mach'n muss?
Ich soll auf alle möglichen Leute hör'n, von der Drachenlehrerin inner Kerkerschule bis zu mein' Eltern und Kumpels und sogar meine Schwester - manchma'!
Ich bin nur ein Kind und bis jetzt bekomm ich ständig allen möglichen Tu-dies-und-tu-das-Kram zu hör'n!
So wie ich mir das vorstell, wird das alles nur noch schlimmer, mit noch mehr Zeugs zum Anhör'n und noch mehr Entscheidungen treff'n?
Wow, ich wünschte, ich könnt einfach 'ne klare Linie find'n, mit den ganzen Antworten, die ich für alle meine Fragen brauch, die ich hab und die ich in der Zukunft wahrscheinlich haben werd?
Zum Beispiel hab ich einem Freund meines Vaters die Hand gegeb'n und der Typ quetschte mir das Blut aus den Fingern und ließ nich' mehr los!
Dann sagte er: "Junger Mann, ein fester Händedruck ist das Zeichen für jemanden mit Charakter, also solltest du an deinem Händedruck arbeiten!"
Dann lachte er und sagte: "Ich habe einiges an starker Trainingsausrüstung und wenn du die nur sechs Monate benutzt, hast du einen eisenharten Händedruck und die Leute werden deinen Charakter in deinem neuen Händedruck fühlen."
So, als das Blut in mein' Händen wieder floss, begann ich zu denken, was in der Welt hat das Quetschen von jemandes Hand damit zu tun, dass man Charakter hat?
Also dacht ich erst, ich schau ma' besser im Wörterbuch nach "Charakter", weil ich vielleicht nicht wusste, was dieses Wort aus einer fremden Sprache wirklich bedeutet?
Das Buch sagte: "Die ganze Qualität des Verhaltens eines Menschen, wie sie sich in seinen Gewohnheiten zu denken und sich auszudrücken, seiner Einstellung und seinen Interessen, seinem Handeln und persönlicher Lebensphilosophie äußert!"
Echt krass, wie in der Welt kann ein Händedruck wie beim Tauzieh'n und Ring'n diesen ganzen Charakterkram in 'n paar Sekunden sag'n?
Pasönlich glaub ich, dass dieses Händedruckzeugs einfach nur 'n and'rer Kampf zwischen Leuten is' über wer is' oben und wer is' unten drunter!
Ich vamute, wie Oma mir gesagt hat, dass, wenn ich erwachsen werd und mich benehm, wie man mir gesagt hat, dann is' das mehr als genug Beweis dafür, dass ich 'ne Person mit gutem Charakter bin, und ich vagess dieses Händedruckzeugs!
Das is nur 'n Spiel mit Namen Charakter, das ich nich spiel'n werd!
Also, davon abgeseh'n, find ich und mach mein' Weg und werd erwachsen und wie Oma sagt: "Du bist auf dem richtigen Weg!"
Danke, Oma.
Und dieses Denk'n und der Kram erschöpft mich.
Also sag ich ma'
Hab euch lieb

Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre is a production, performance and distribution unit, which was initiated and developed by Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith and Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith, both experienced artists from the U.S.A.
Fountainhead® engages people from various national, cultural, ethnic, socio-economic, religious backgrounds, and sexual identities, and works in a variety of artistic and cultural areas, with the goal of creating, experiencing and communicating intercultural exchange within its projects and to the world community.
Since its founding in 1980, Berlin/Germany, Fountainhead® has presented a variety of international, intercultural and interdisciplinary productions in the areas of dance, theatre, film festivals, television programming, film distribution, publications, seminars, exhibitions, workshops and musical presentations.

The festival screens cinema from the African Diaspora and other films from varied intercultural backgrounds or perspectives.

Black International Cinema Berlin originated from the Black Cultural Festival, which was produced and directed by Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre in 1986 for the first time in Europe, a 3-week event in Berlin, which presented the contributions of Black people to world culture through film, theater, dance, music, workshops and seminars, and was an homage to the legendary tap dancer, Carnell Lyons.
The venues were the Theatermanufaktur am Halleschen Ufer from March 3-16, music – dance – theatre; Hochschule der Künste Berlin on March 11, symposium; Kino Arsenal from March 17-23, film.
Organization and Artistic Direction: Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith (USA/Berlin), Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith (USA/Berlin), Donald Muldrow McKinney Griffith II (USA/Berlin), Dr. Ntongela Masilela (South Africa);
in cooperation with: Prof. Dr. Abdul Alkalimat (USA), Uazuvara Ewald Katjivena (Namibia), Getinet Belay (Ethiopia), Joliba Africa Center; Organization: Erika Gregor (Arsenal Cinema, Germany); Organization Assistance: Annette Koschmieder (Germany)

Additionally, Fountainhead® produces and directs since the founding in 1995, the weekly intercultural television magazine program THE COLLEGIUM – Forum & Television Program Berlin, broadcast Thursdays from 9-10 a.m. and Saturdays from 10-11 a.m. at Alex - Open Channel Berlin, and furthermore televised in Magdeburg, Wolfsburg, Dessau and additional cities.
In 1990 Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre established Cultural Zephyr e.V. as a not for profit organization, which administers the cultural and artistic undertakings of Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre.
