I observe the general rules of distance and hygiene, such as washing hands regularly and keeping hands away from your face and I'm wearing a mask where I have to [but I'm bugged by it] but some rules are very hard to follow such as keeping distance from family and friends or staying at home as much as possible.


The person after me coverd a scar with a tattoo.
Please correct my mistakes. I'd really appreciate it ❤

No but my sister did, a few years after her cancer.

The person after me was really good at spelling at school.

Yes, because I don't speak a language with a stupid eccentric orthography like English or French! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

The person after me is eccentric.

With that fecking COVID forbidding us to go out for anything else than buying nosh, even the tiniest journey is a dream!

1. Using traditional anglicisations like "Strasburg" is outdated. The city is normally referred to by the official French form of its name, "Strasbourg", when speaking and writing English. (There are many towns in the USA named "Strasburg" but I doubt you'd want to visit any of them!)
2. It's cute how much you use "nosh" but it isn't a general synonym for "food". It comes from a Yiddish word for "nibble" and thus usually refers to a light meal or snack. I most frequently hear it in the expression "have a nosh", which is almost synonymous with "have a snack". (And like "snack", it's most frequently a count noun in US English; in UK English, "get some nosh" is common with the same meaning.) At any case, I would always think of prepared food, not ordinary groceries.

In some ways I like to be, indeed... That's more interesting (or anyway less boring) than to be normal/casual/usual.

The person after me cherishes their amount of abnormality.
