sprechen sie deutsch

Ok. so i was at dinner with my host family again last week. We had a grand time, their english is great and we talked a little german, a very little. Also we talked about the things that Teryn and I need; some bath towels, our laundry done, and some more food for breakfast. We told Oma that we needed some bread milk and juice.
On my way out the door We were saying our good byes and I said, "tschuss" this means goodbye it sounds like -chews- or -choose- anyways, I was like
"tschuss"
and Oma says, "yes milk, bread and juice"
"no, no. tschuss"
she looked at me and then taryn and said, "yes juice"
ok... "goodbye"
then she says, "ciao"
ya, don't forget our chow...

I'll buy you groceries for breakfast, get you bath towels, AND do your laundry if you come home and be my neighbor again! haha I'm glad you are having fun and learning German. When you get home we'll hang out and have a few night walks or spend the nights. That sounds lesbo to people who don't know our childhood. sorry
