I believe I spider… a little German lesson ;-)

(unfortunately, I lost the image I refer to in this post)

This is a little piece of wood on the beach. When I first spotted it it looked a little like a spider. So I thought I take a picture from a different angle.

My headline might not make you laugh unless you are German or know German. There is a company who sells t-shirts with German sayings or expressions translated literally into English. “Ich glaub ich spinne/I believe I spider” expresses surprise about something pretty silly or amazing. But the German word for “spider” would be with a capital S while this one without the capital rather means “being crazy”. But never mind….
