Der deutsche Weg zu trinken

She delivers this while we are sitting up with the ashtray between us.

Later as I pour the Prosecco, "You don't even know the German way to drink:

  • "Raise your glass, like so.
  • Look into my eyes - that is always.
  • Drink
  • Raise glass again
  • Look again
  • Allow some silence to put down glass
  • Think serious on our moment."
