While we’re having a lot of fun here, the German attitude about things can still be glaring. So, Gary and I have added to our arsenal. I’m actually looking forward to my next unpleasant encounter so I can say “Jesus liebt dich.” As you may have guessed, that means “Jesus loves you.” I will say it with the drippiest sincerity I can muster. It also has the benefit of being true, even for Germans.
Well, that sounds as if I don’t like Germans, doesn’t it? There are several I personally like quite a bit and I think they like me. There’s just a particular brand of German that pops up in grocery stores and other places that you just want to smother with a pillow.
