What to wear? – Was soll ich bloß anziehen?

Es gibt unzählige Witze über Menschen mit irrigen Tattoos in chinesischen Schriftzeichen, die mit den Worten „goldenes Schwein“ oder „billig zu haben“ auf ihren Armen, Rücken oder Hinterteil herumlaufen.  Man braucht aber nicht mal so weit zu gehen, ich bin sicher, dass es genug Kleidung mit fremdländischen Schriftzügen gibt, die einfach nur falsch sind.  Deshalb habe ich mich gefreut, als mich Sharif fragte, ob sein T-Shirt „gut“ sei.  Zuerst dachte ich etwas verwirrt, dass er ein Kompliment von mir haben wollte, aber dann konnte ich ihm versichern, dass es in Ordnung war, mit „rich and young“ auf der Brust herumzulaufen.  Selbst, wenn es nicht ganz zutreffend ist, so ist es wenigstens nicht anstößig.  Ich finde es gut, dass er verständig genug ist, um nach der Bedeutung zu fragen.

Schnelle Liebe

There are countless jokes about misguided tattoos in Chinese characters with people sporting “golden swine” or “cheap to acquire” on their arms, backs or behinds.  One doesn’t even have to go as far as tattoos, I’m sure there is a lot of clothing with writings in foreign scripts which is just wrong.  I was therefore quite pleased when Sharif asked me if his t-shirt was “good”.  After my initial irritation thinking he was fishing for compliments I assured him that “rich and young” was okay to have on his chest.  Even if not entirely accurate, it is at least not offensive.  I applaud him for being sensible and asking about what he was wearing.

  1. The daughter of a friend of mine went to France with her mother, who is French.
    Of course, being in France, they bought lots of lovely French Fashion items. The daughter came home earlier than her mother and her father, an American, had to pick her up at the Airport. He almost had a fit when she walked out of the Arrival gate and towards him, very happily sporting a lovely new T-shirt she had bought in France. It had the Picture of a cute kitten on it with a large pink bow around ist neck and the caption underneath it said: “kiss my pussy”………. The T-shirt was confiscated by Dad, never to be worn again 🙂
