I make a habit of seducing my wife with honeyed texts and come-hither emails, and I know I’m doing it right when she replies with perplexing German expressions like these:

“Totally… I’m red like a tomatoe in front of my computer, and I am smiling in circles.”*

*From the German expression: “Lächelnd in Kreisen,” which literally means, “to smile in circles.”
