Golden Cows and Roast Beef

In German, adjective endings depend on the noun they are describing. My textbook explained this with some examples, including Gute Milch. This means "Good Milk". Now really, who ever says that?

This milk is REALLY REALLY good! Where did you get this FANTASTIC milk? It is simply delectable.

On an unrelated note, I bought new headphones. It's about time, too. My roommates do not need to know that I'm listening to Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne" on repeat.

Buy milk directly from a dairy farm and you'll want to say that.

maybe so. I've just never heard anyone say Good Milk! Probably because there aren't a lot of dairy farms in Vancouver.

remember that milk that we used to get from some dairy farm in victoria? It came in bottles and we'd fight for the fat on the top because it was unhomogenized.

That was, as the germans would say, Gute Milch.

ok, ok. I stand corrected.

Did you have to tell everyone that we fought over milk fat globs as children?

Hmmmmm

You know there is no sufficient catch-all-term for people like you.

Maybe we should call it Theanesse.
And could rate how more or less Thea-ish you are on various days.
