At the health office

At the health officeAt the town hall, an official asked me some random questions. “What is your mother’s maiden name?” (Keeley), and “Do you have a dog?” (Nein).

At the health office, the doctor asked if my family were healthy.
“Meine familie sind gesunde,” I said.

I thought about Pim’s stomach and Mim’s alopecia; Nim’s spine and Kim’s hypochondria. But my German wasn’t up to describing these, which was probably a good thing.
