Yes, that's me trying out all my new German words. I feel like I'm making amazing progress with my German Language Acquisition, but sometimes I just have German words and phrases swimming in my brain and I don't know what they mean. But, I digress. This post is not about my GLA (German Language Acquisition) but about Alfons & Kayla's birthday! So here we go. . . .
We started off the day with a little mani-pedi. Just Monika, Melissa, Kayla and I. So, not to be stereotypical, but we went to a predominantly Vietnamese nail salon with my non-English speaking aunt. So in their limited English they are asking Monika questions (are you getting a mani and a pedi, what color etc) to which Monika of course stared blankly. So I intervened and just told her, she doesn't speak English, she is from Germany. To which she (the Vietnamese Nail Salon owner) replies, "Oh, I speak German! I live there for 5 years!" So, no more language barrier and happy mani! I should have known, her name is Heidi!
