Life. Death. And many things in between.
I envision a play, made up of these and other phrases. Those two right there make a nice little dialogue.
Und ich hab' gestern bei der Fechtprüfung "mich erst mal positionieren" müssen, bevor ich loslegen konnte, *ggg*.(Mag auch mal wieder nach Washington...)So long,Corinna
@Marcellina: I know, I know - I've been meaning to collect overheard nuggets of worldly wisdom and turn them into a decorative little chain, but somehow don't seem to get round to it ... but then that would yet again confirm my fundamental snobbishness, so I might as well weed the garden instead.But really, there is so much verbal shit out there .... Electoral campaign slogans are one heck of a treasure trove. A few of years ago the Rhineland-Palatinate conservatives hoped to pick up a few votes with the uplifting line "Besser für die Menschen" ("Better for People"). That's how low political rhetoric has sunk in this country!Another of our favourites is the slogan for a certain type of industrially made bread, which you only ever find on their lorries: "Echt lecker!"I mean: That's right enticing, isn't it?@Frau Mahlzahn: Don't fret - so dolle is Washington ja nun auch wieder nicht. Jetzt frage ich mich nur, was "Positionieren" beim Fechten bedeutet .... Und spontan habe ich irgendwie Schmerzen in den inneren Oberschenkeln.
*lol* -- doesn't mean anything at all, just that I was still busy finding the right Fechtposition and holding my Florett correctly, *ggg*. I'm beyond the severe in pain in my legs (and elsewhere in my body) -- but it was a long way...I like Washington a lot, not as much as Colorado, but still: a lot.So long,Corinna
