It’s a challenge to participate in the GPP Street Team Crusade No. 7 when you’re not an English speaker. But maybe I have one or two sayings which also work in English.
- “This one’s good, you don’t even need to taste it” (Dersch guad, den brauchetse ned probiire) – within our group of friends this is a standing term for our favorite Alsacian sparkling wine (Crémant d’Alsace). This is because every year, we go to Alsacia for a long weekend and buy large amounts of Riesling and Crémant at always the same winery. Of course, we taste the new vintage. And although we never leave without a considerable amount of cartons, the lady says this same phrase every time when we want to taste her Crémant. It’s just hilarious. Of course, it’s really a good Crémant, and we would actually buy it unseen, but it just cracks us up every year.
- “Creative parking” is synonimous for “reckless parking” after a colleague used this term in our company’s intranet forum.
That’s all I have come up with for now, but I am really enjoying the lists and stories of other crusaders. Thanks, Michelle, for the great theme!
