: I would like to apologize for my PS. I hope that didn't offend. I have friends (not close) from Germany. We joke about things like that. It was wrong of me to assume you would find it humorous.
Got second thoughts there, remembering that commercial about German humour, hm? Ahem, about the lack thereof I should say...? Grin...
Dana, you are much more concerned about offending than I'd ever be,.. grin... I admit it took me a moment to get it, I was thinking: What suspenders? And on shorts? Huh? - Haha! Believe me, we joke about things like that too! Hey, I hear German jokes from my husband and his friends all the time, and I usually can't help cracking up over them. They love to hear me "retaliate" too, but I'm usually not fast enough...
I probably sounded like a smartass telling you about terms and such, I just thought it might come in handy one day to know what some people don't like to hear. Oops, time for Voyager! Got to go.. Til later.. :-)
