Sitting on the steps of the old amphitheatre, I hummed the melody of the song that marked the beginning of our lovestory. There was no shadow, I could feel the heat on my skin.

„Thank you guys, good job, it will be a fantastic premiere! “

The director was enthusiastic.

“You were all great, just memorize this rehearsal and replay it at 9:00 p.m. tonight!”

Some of them laughed, I watched the group leaving the wooden stage and tried to find out, which of the three women was the one who just ruined my marriage: Bianca, Emilia or Desdemona.

105 words today are looking forward to your helpful comments!

    • Oh Janet thank you so much! It´s just because in Germany English is so popular, meanwhile the kids in the first year already start with English lessons. Our son visits a bilingual class at the Gymnasium (High School) and their history-,biology- and geography-lessons are in English. (He is 14) The Germans love English so much that they use it in sometimes really stupid ways, mostly those who don´t speak the language so good 🙂 they love to use English words. Very favored are jobtitles. Everyone is a „manager“ , you won´t find a „Geschäftsführer“ anylonger, there are only super-important CEOs, CFOs, COOs and C-whatever. Advertising slogans often are in English and sometimes they are a catastrophy. A big perfume and cosmetic retailer used to have the slogan „come in and find out“ – for years! Until half of the country laughed about them, then they changed it. Patriots call this phenomenon „Denglish“
      We can be very funny when we try to be serious 🙂

      • Carmen, I’m of German descent and my grandparents all spoke at least some German. We were the only people I knew who pronounced Volkswagen correctly and called German Shepherds Poliezeihunds. 🙂

        Much love to you, too. (I don’t know how to do the umlaut, so I’ll go with English.)

      • that´s great! My grandma was in NYC 3 years, two of her sisters immigrated end of the 20ies with their husbands and they started a family. So I have, vice versa, also a kind of connection to the US. We are all connected, we are all from one origin.

    • Aloha Doug,
      I don´t mind, cause I don´t know how my English sounds for a native speaker 🙂 every attempt is a risk and no risk no fun! Thanks for your comment, I feel I am improving, I learn so much each week. This group is awesome, I adore the internet for this incredible possibilities of communication. Sitting in my little village in Germany (cold, rainy, cloudy day) exchanging messages with a guy in Hawai (probably sunny, warm and blue sky). That makes my day.
      Liebe Grüße
