For example I've been getting ready for my family to come sprucing up the house and I told her I need to cut the lawn today. She said just don't do it between 1-3 pm it's FORBIDDEN!
Forbidden is such a strong word ...kind of a scary word.....wooooo! Forbidden!!
She said you can not cut the lawn or make unnecessary noise or your neighbors will complain. I said I thought that was on Sunday...No she said it's everyday. During that time is when people must lay down and rest! Do people do that in America? I said you mean Nap? Some people do but it's not breaking any cardinal rules it you make noise during the day. Well here it is and you can get a ticket so don't do it, also it is best to never call anyone during this time. Okay because it is FORBIDDEN? No it is just best no to because they are resting. Our bank and post office and several stores close during this time. I wonder how you say Siesta in German???
She ask me to use my closet....I knew what she meant.....Water closet aka toilette aka bathroom. But it still made me chuckle!!
She also made me turn off the fan because she can not have a draft or it will make her squeeze!
I didn't have to heart to correct her, sneeze or squeeze either way I have sweat running down my back!
