I’ve been sick the past few days, though fortunately it’s nothing more than a bad cold. In Germany it’s necessary to get a doctor’s note for sick days. It’s not hard to get, but without an appointment you might wind up in a waiting room for an hour or two for that lovely slip of paper.

I wouldn’t describe my german as bad, but it certainly is uneven. My medical german is particularly poor, and most of my vocabulary relating to pain or injury comes from my early years teaching english in preschools. Going to the doctor is especially difficult when you speak like a four year-old, though fortunately there have been some reprieves.

In other news, Mark, over at 2816 Monument, wrote up a very kind review of Caffeinated Toothpaste. Head on over to check out his excellent comic and take a peek.
