The universal language of parenting
January 30, 2012
As they passed the glassware he warned:
'Nur angucken, sonst geht dat kaputt!' (You can look, but please don't touch!)
The child defiantly lunged at the wineglasses, throwing his dad a look that said: 'Whatcha gonna do about it!'
'Was hat der Papa gesagt? Nur gucken!' (What did daddy say? No touching!)
Angrily he turned to his wife, who was just about to put a hefty, wooden owl into their shopping cart and said: 'Ich will weg!' (I wanna leave!)
Then we parted ways, but at the check out I could still hear him: 'Nana! Nur gucken!'
But I'm not sure whether he was talking to his wife, or to his child!
