Top 5 Things I Love About Germany

(As I sit in Berlin)

1- Things happen on time. As a fiercely punctual person, this is music to my (always waiting) ears!

2- You roll up everywhere in a Benz….flyest taxis around, for sure.

3- Every male sounds like Hans and Franz…let the giggles ensue.***

4- You get to say “Guten Morgen!!” every.single.day—I don’t know about you, but I call that a win.

5- Everyone speaks English…because lawd knows I could never pronounce half of these words. Exactly how many letters can one add to a word before it becomes stream-of-consciousness mind ooze?

***Yes, I realize they were supposed to be Austrian…but the language is still German!

Top 5 Reasons I’m Not A Birthday-Hater

1- Each year inevitably brings about new knowledge. For instance, this year I learned that bier/fanta is an oddly amazing combination. Who knew? 

2- You pick the restaurant and no one can say a damn thing about it. Load up ya’ll, we’re going to Bojangles! 

3- It’s the most exciting day on Facebook, hands down.

4- There will be cake. 

5- It means you’re alive, silly. So much better than the alternative.

***Note: Today is my birthday!! Here’s to another wildly unpredictable year.
