I like my hands. They are very useful. I can hold things in them, I can pick things up and I can write on them. All of which I do quite frequently. Writing on my hand is easier than writing on a piece of paper while driving: it won't flutter out of my hands onto the floor and I can't tear it.
I always write on my hand in Dutch. I am after all Dutch. I've lived in the Netherlands for most of my life. I speak, read, write, dream in Dutch.
So, I don't know what happened today. I needed some shopping and instead of writing a grocery list beforehand, I wrote the list on my hand while cycling! And the funniest thing: I couldn't remember the words. In Dutch anyway, the English was right there! So, in the end I wrote it down in English. Bug, because I needed insectenspray (bug spray) and blister because I needed blarenpleisters (blister aids).
