The Importance of Consonants
October 9th, 2010
When planning a weekend excursion, it is important to pay close attention to consonants. My aunt came in for a quick “meet the Bear” visit and we embarked on a trip to a local township’s Oktoberfest. At least, that’s what we thought we were doing. In actuality, we went to an Octoberfest.
See the difference? Oktoberfest = Fun German Festival. We had visions of munching on bratwursts and schnitzel, enjoying some German music, and even dancing a polka or two. In anticipation, I dressed Miss Mouse in her little German dirndl. She was adorable.
She was also the only person in attendance at the Octoberfest to be wearing Bavarian attire. Which made sense, given that the event was in no way intended to be an exploration of German culture.
