We Have to Finish the Sausages or Else It Will Rain
March 15, 2012
I learned a new saying today. Apparently, the Germans instill in their children a fear that if they don’t finish all the sausages, the next day’s weather will be rainy. Clearly, in Berlin, the children have been slacking.
well…I had the dog and onions but no potato or cucumber salad…arg..
Ron was one of the finicky ones I told you about.
Well, I wish I had known about that when I was raising children and two of the four were finicky eaters. Maybe I can start using it on the young great granddaughters. The others are too old to believe it. love.xo
Its not just sausages… Its whenever you dont finish your plate ;)
Oh my gosh – I have to tell the Berliners! ;)
Agreed! It’s the threat I’ve had in the back of my mind since kindergarten..
now i know what to threaten you with when i finally find that pig’s liver! ;)
