They are all here for your anniversary, Miss Sophie06 Sep 2012
These days we can only joke about how long it has been. We can still quote the
English German (whatever) TV classic "Dinner for One" to one another: "You look younger than ever, love! Younger than ever!" Of course, the line may wear out someday. If someday this blog ceases to be updated and you hear about a particularly gory family drama* from northern Germany, you'll know I tried the line once too often.
*Family drama (Familiendrama) is one of those phrases that in German means something completely different than in English. For us it might mean a TV show suitable to watch with your kids, or perhaps the "discussion" that ensues when a teenaged daughter tells her parents that she is pregnant. In German it refers to a murder (often a murder/suicide) within a family.
