9. My mother hates the fact that she is German.
Edited on Thu Sep-21-06 11:14 AM by fudge stripe cookays
She hated her father because he made her eat potato pancakes and other stuff she hated. Ergo, she tried to pass her hatred onto me.

It wasn't until I married the wonderful reprehensor and had German food in Madison as a newlywed that I grew to love sauerkraut and bratwurst and Hefeweizen on draft.

Now, I have grown into my Germanic-ness and HOW.

I am Teuton! Hear me roar!
