  •  I love them trains (3+ / 0-)

    I have spent countless hours riding those German trains.  

    On my second trip to Germany about 20 some years ago, I remember sitting the first class, and this old Oma says, "Das is die erste Klasse." and I'm all like, "Tcha, Dat weiz ich.  Rutsch ma' rüber.  Meine  vier Kollegen werden bald hier sitzen."

    Okay, so I didn't say the second part.  

    Another time, a different older German woman said in a wistful voice something about "if she were only 60 years younger. "

    That's a good time to learn the subjunctive.
