Remember show-n-tell in grade school? Sigh. I loooooved show-n-tell. I can't for the life of me remember what I used to show the class back then but I knew each week it was something hugely important in my life. Like a light-up yo-yo. Or maybe my cabbage patch doll.
So this week I thought I'd bring back show-n-tell and show you something I stumbled upon online last week. My German book!
First, look at that cover. Isn't it adorable? And the translation of the summary is so funny! Granted, maybe the translator I used is off but here is what it says:
A triple espresso on ice - who is appointed, has class. Latte Macchiato with skimmed milk and sweetener means against: Zick Alert! Jane, in a coffee shop working, calls it "Espressologie" - the art of people based on their coffee preferences to be characterized. Their newest game is for single customers the perfect partner. Hit rate: 100%! The little coffee shop is a Mecca of the lonely hearts. But in their zeal to make everyone happy, Jane looks over almost the icing on her own Moccaccino ...
Okay, I LOVE the phrase Zick Alert! Em (Miss Querylicious) translated it for me and it means B**ch alert. HA!
And that last line of the summary-- it's almost scandalous sounding isn't it?
It was so fun finding the German version of my book online already and I hope the book makes sense as translated. I personally will never know since I don't read German but if anyone ever gets a hold of a copy and reads it you'll have to let me know what you think!Kristina, Miss Delighted to Debut
