They say Germany is a nation of engineers and poets. Sometimes their way with words catches me off guard. Yesterday, my future mother-in-law told me “I admire the way you go naked on the floor”. I guess I have some explaining to do. What she was meaning is that I walk bare foot around the house. Even in winter I have never been a fan of slippers. I can’t explain why, I just don’t like them. Germans on the other hand, make “house shoes” a religious activity. What about you? Am I the only one that goes naked on the floor?
