OCD Germans

This blog post by a Mexican living in Germany is pretty funny to me. I grew up around this, yet I was somehow not afflicted with the need to have my life be tidy and orderly in every way.

I'm a German freak, I suppose.

In more ways than one.

I'll be the MC for a German soccer banquet in a few weeks. It's the 60th anniversary of Green White Soccer Club--a club co-founded by my father. I asked a few of the old-timers what they wanted me to talk about as the MC, and they all said, "Keep it short. Nobody wants to hear you talk." Also..."No funny stuff."

Doesn't that sound like fun?

I'm thinking of explaining the club history through interpretive dance. I'm sure they'll love it.
