When I was in Germany in March, I went to the little locally owned office supply store near my German school. I bought half a dozen of my favorite colored pens. “You like these pens, don’t you?” the clerk asked me in German. She was a young woman with long straight hair.
“I do!” I told her. “I use them for everything.”
“Me too!” she said. She kept saying more, but the barrier of language and time have erased those details from my memory.
