My wife eats a lot of traditional German meals. For breakfast, she often arranges her plate with a semi-hard boiled egg beside a slice of dense, seedy bread, which is covered with some kind of fattening dairy spread or a horrifying layer of soft organ meat. Before we lived together, I tried to emulate this meal in order to better understand her culture; I tossed a hunk of French bread on a paper plate with some sharp cheddar cheese and a slice of pepperoni, then sent her a picture of it:
ME: “Did you see my totally German breakfast?”
THE WIFE: “…I did. It’s a start.”
