today i am trying to balance the struggle between learning german, getting a clue about the swiss german dialects - working on three varying and unrelated ideas concepts and wondering how my parents have lasted 55 years in marriage when the two of them are so different and opposite. just the last topic is enough to mess up a brain. this photo sums it up fairly well. it was a couple of years ago. i snapped the image, as at the table was a very suave man, and the young woman was perfectly coiffed and very proper. the dog seemed to see me and say, "for the love of god, please get me out of here and take me to that cafe you go to instead of this one where people seem to go to be seen."
now i have to get out of here and see how good or poorly i did on my german test yesterday.
