I have to share. Just know we love all of our new foreign friends and that we are not laughing at you, but with you.
Sometimes I forget that not everyone over here gets our slang. So, long story, short...some friends of ours are trying to get a group together for an American-style football game. That in and of itself is pretty funny (more to come on that later). An email goes out inviting everyone to some pre-game bratwursts, tailgating, and then the game following. Simple, right?
Here is the response from our Austrian friend. Gotta love him.
"...had to ask google what tailgating could be (for the un-informed: a social event around the trunk of a car - which by the way includes two problems: who has a car and who has to drive afterwards?)."
Reminds me of the time we had to explain what camel-toe meant to our German friend. It definitely keeps life entertaining.
