Yesterday a young man almost hit me with his shiny black Mini Cooper. For the record, traffic merging onto the Autobahn has to yield. Rather than yield, he floored it and would have sideswiped me or run out of lane and crashed. I am not willing to risk an accident so I did the responsible thing any defensive driver would do and slammed on my brakes. I'm grateful that Sophie wasn't in the car with me or I would have lost my mind.
I was on my way to Lübeck to return some jeans to Zara. My latest method of buying jeans is to order several pairs in different sizes online, try them on at home and then return the ones I don't like. It might sound tedious but it's easier than taking Sophie to the store. She has something against jeans shopping. I ended up choosing low rise ankle jeans by default. They weren't what I was looking for but I always end up getting suckered into buying something more on trend than what I would normally buy. They are kind of cute, right?
It was a beautiful day in Lübeck but I was feeling grumpy. I still have the remnants of the horrible awful nasty ear infection. Maybe that's why everyone I interacted with seemed terribly rude. It could have been me though, I wasn't feeling very friendly.

Lately I have been missing the strangest things from the US. Like warm weather and watermelon and Dairy Queen and chocolate syrup on ice cream. The last two things have manifested themselves in an overwhelming craving for McFlurries. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I think I would eat a McFlurry every day if I could. I hear that Spring has arrived in New York, can you believe that? You wouldn't believe me if I said I wasn't jealous.
