having so many different people in such a small space can be lots of fun at times. the other day i taught my irish friend to say, “fo-shizzle.” he usually says, “fo-sizzle” but we’re working on it. with his accent it’s so funny.
a german girl, hannah, was giggling the other morning as she told me of her surprise at us north americans (canadians and americans) coming down to breakfast in our pajama bottoms! yes, there are a few here who do that, it’s allowed, but is so not right here in germany.
samuel, a german boy, is deteremined to better his english during his time here. he’s always asking questions and when someone suggest saying it in german and having someone translate, he refuses. he was taught american football yesterday, sat down at the dinner table and told me, “your american football hurts.” with a few other friends we got him to start saying, “awesome to the macs” (a canadian dude’s saying), “who’s your daddy” (whenever he makes a touchdown), and “peace out” (always when he leaves a room). he’s got the greatest and funniest accent when he says them.
yes, it’s rather fun.
