She.

She's always surprised when she farts. A definite "what the hell was that?" expression.

Because my tooth paste and shoe polish are the same color.

Re: I smiled because...

A club I just joined in Basel emailed me to say they have spaces in a German conversation group. Hopefully this will help me rebuild my confidence with the language and get back on track
I miss the class I had been in for ages, but I just knew I wouldn't be able to keep up this term as it seemed to shift up a gear and I wasn't ready.

Re: I smiled because...

Played a game against the computer and got a bit frustrated.
So I watched what the computer put emphasis on and now I beat it on regular basis - unless I get a bit excited which of course the computer never does.

Treating myself to a Lumumba. An other thing I learnt about on EF.
Definitely not the worst place I ever frequented, this EF.

Ok, there seems to be quite a few threads about various disadvantages about so I'm going to be sickeningly cute and cuddly and suggest a thread where you can all tell us about the last thing that made you smile and maybe make others smile too. It's not all bad and life is absolutely too short. Go out, play in the sunshine, feed some ducks, smell the flowers and so on. Then, tell us about what made you smile.

And the last thing that made me smile is stumbling upon my reputation and seeing the lovely comments people took the trouble to make. Thank you!

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because I just heard a man on a phone-in radio show requesting a love-song to be played for his wife of many years, because, as he said with a big, husky, strong voice: "She's still the best and the most super woman ever, and because I'm so proud of her."

Re: I smiled because...

...because it's 29 February.

Every 4yrs, I get to terrorise my commitment phobe OH by threatening to propose to him. All I have to do is say things like "Will you maaaa........ke me a coffee please?" to send him scurrying out of the room with his hands over his ears

Quite a good age then. I had an uncle born on Feb 29 - unfortunately, he lived only to 11.

Re: I smiled because...

I asked our postman if he would take a letter to the post for me.
"But of course!" he smiled and off it went.
