A few days ago I found a wee note in my mail box. It was from a nice neighbor with young kids whom I've chatted with a few times since moving into the building in August. Here's what she wrote: Hast du mal Lust auf einen Kaffee oder Tee? Ich wuerde mich freuen! Then there's a bit about what times would be best. She concluded with: Klingle doch einfach mal!
|Just 'klingle' it?|
So, does this mean that I am really able to just ring her doorbell around the appointed times and she'll be ready to entertain me? I suppose that if she's not able to have a bevvie at that point, then she'd just tell me and send me on my merry way. Right?
I don't know why, but just ringing someone's doorbell seemingly unannounced makes me feel funny. Back in the States, no one rang my bell who wasn't expected. People usually called me first to see if both I were home and I had time for a visit. Don't get me wrong, I'd like to ring her door bell. She's very nice and I'm up for a chat, but I guess I have door-bell angst, or something. Again, just to be clear, if she's written 'ring the bell', then that actually means I should just 'ring the bell' and be done with it...nicht wahr?
