"Guten Morgen..."

...I said to the nurse at my doctor's office when I called this morning.

TBF: Ich bin TBF, und ich benutze Nasonex Nasenspray für meine Allergien. Ich fliege morgen vormitag nach Chicago, und habe ich heute bemerkt das mein Nasonex leer ist. Haben sie Nasonex bei ihren Büro, oder muss ich diese Medizin bestellen?

Nurse: Was ist ihre Nachname?

TBF: F

Nurse: Was ist ihre Vorname?

TBF: T

Nurse: Yes, vee haff dee medizeen here in dee offees. You may peek eet up at any time.

TBF: Do you close for lunch?

Nurse: No, vee remain open.

TBF: Thanks. I'll pick up the medicine early this afternoon.


Why the heck did I bother with two years of German lessons?

I could have saved the money and bought a new watch instead!

I'm a Rhinocort girl. Nasonex gave me a voice like Aunt Clara from Bewitched (but it worked better.)

Love un-swiss miss' photo. Looks like the baby Zoe.

I've had to turn comment modification back on. Sorry!

I just love when you write you "German"-English. But the reason you took the lessons is that you can understand when people are saying something about you and you can reply: "DAS habe ich verstanden!"

I do not understand the comment moderation. How dare?

The old "nasal spray" gag for the "hayfever" routine. Just come clean about the solvent abuse, it'll make life a lot easier!! Hope you have a good trip!
