Thanks to chatting, albeit briefly with a few locals – “auf Deutsch” I have learned that they take the Thursday and Friday off before Easter and according to the cashier – who is a classy woman older than I am but by less than 20 years, they follow the Easter which is tomorrow.
This means that I still don’t understand why the church is doing the Easter breakfast the following week unless what is really happening is that I do not understand North German protocols for polite deceit. Also, I received a signal in the mail from an insurance company I had thought told me No, which I why I went and got another one. This other one told me yes, but today I found a magazine from the other one and am now not sure if my son made a mistake and it really is that they both told me Yes.
The local Oster Feste is about to start. I might go. I might like it. It is chilly out today but very light.
