Friday Photo: Toothpaste Mustard
Let’s assume that you don’t speak German, or at the very least, speak it fluently. Then you would be as surprised as I was last week whenever I saw two brightly-colored tubes on my kitchen table and was told that they were not filled with toothpaste. The mind spins:
“Süßer senf”: a phrase intended to help clear the nose of blockage during a cold? “Mittelscharfer senf”: a relation to John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt?
No matter — a Google translator tells me one of these is a Bavarian sweet mustard; the other “medium-hot mustard.”
