But in general it is a sweet guy. A though shell with a small heart.


Is that a Freudian slip or lost in translation from dutch? In english (and btw german!) one would call it a BIG heart.

One fault, and one lost in translation……

Fault -> as Rico is a person it has to be 'he' instead of 'it'.

Lost in translation -> In Dutch you have the expression "een klein hartje hebben" (oft in combo with someones appearance). As kind of a rule, we use it for people who behave very tough and violent (or look like this), but are actually very sweet or sensitive. If you translate this literally you are talking about a small heart (having a small heart). BTW it is also 2x times small in Dutch as it contains both 'klein' (small)  as the suffix 'je' (which also makes an item small).

Confusing enough, the Dutch als know the opposite expression: having a big heart. And in this case the contradiction is certainly not the opposite. In fact, with a big heart you are SO sweet and accommodating, that there is room in it for a lot of others. Yet there is a sort of difference in meaning; "Hij heeft een grote mond en een groot hart" does not quite work. And 'die vrouw doet zoveel voor anderen, ze heeft een klein hartje', does not touch the essence either.


It has to be: But in general he is a sweet guy. A though shell with a big heart.

I get almost all my braces off on July 9th.  There's three that have to stay on because the tooth is not turning the way it's supposed to.   Supercontent Jumping  But it's in the back so it won't be noticeable!

Joyeux Jour du Muguet Elissa!

They are my favourite flower (my wedding bouquet was just a huge bunch of muguets and their leaves). When I was a young girl my Dad and I would cycle to a small patch of them in the woods to pick a few for my mom in spring. My dream was to have a garden full of them. They are plentyful in the woods around my home, and I dug up some rhizomes and planted them in my garden. The place is now slowly being taken over by them. This spring, they're blooming early and last evening I suddenly noticed their scent coming from the flower beds. Paradise is real. At last.
Now I'll bring some inside and check them for 13 flowers for good luck!
