Mitbringsel / present

(English version follows below)

Habe heute Karsten losgeschickt, um für die Eltern von unserem Freund, bei denen wir dieses Wochenende übernachten werden, ein Blume als Mitbringsel zu kaufen.

Anderthalb Stunden später kam er wieder zurück. Mit einem knapp zwei Meter großen Olivenbaum.

Ich frag mich, wieso mich das eigentlich noch überrascht. Und nun bleibt nur noch die Frage, wie wir morgen fünf Leute, zwei Kindersitze, einen Buggy, eine Kraxe, eine Tasche mit wetterfester Kleidung, einen Koffer und einen Olivenbaum in unser kleines Mietauto kriegen…




Today, I assigned Karsten to buy a flower for the parents of our friend, with whom we’ll be staying this weekend.

One and a half hours later, he arrived back home. With a two-meter high olive tree.

I shouldn’t be surprised anymore, really. After all, I have lived with this guy for more than eight years now. Now we just have to figure out how we’ll squeeze five people, two child seats, one buggy, one baby back carrier, one bag plus one bag with weatherproofed clothes and an olive tree into our small rental car.

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
