PIMPED

Due to circumstances I had to be in Leiden today. Our office would like to recruit a stagiair, so I went to visit Leiden University. Being back after ten years felt a bit strange. Everything I used to know had obviously been pimped. The old bookstore where you could buy cigarettes had turned into a literary cafe and the lunchroom looked a lot more colourful than it once was. I could not help but wonder if I had been pimped aswell, and if so in what way. On the way back I bumped into my old roommate, now a mother of two. She said: ‘you haven’t changed at all,’ which I guess should be considered a compliment.
