Growing up in a family of German speakers it was funny to hear the phrases my grandmother would throw out in frustration at people. I would translate the phrases in my head and laugh because the direct translation was often so ridiculous.
Wandering through Stuttgart I stumbled upon these amazing postcards.
And I thought of my grandmother and laughed. Alas, I did not find her favourite saying which she said to me all the time: “Du bist ein alte Sauigel” which translates literally to “You’re an old Pig Hedgehog.” Ah, I miss grandma.
