[The stairs to my apartment.]
Unfortunately, I cannot give a definite answer to a lot of the questions I am presented with.
They include but are not limited to:
Why are you here, like, besides for work?It's funny, because most of the people who ask me these questions ask in passing, as if I have a one-word answer I can give them about any of the above. Most days I simply explain that it depends on XYZ, and change the topic. Other days I give a straight-faced answer that is absurd, like if they ask what I like most about Germany, I will just stare at them and without skipping a beat say something like, "Haribo is far cheaper here."
How long do you want to stay?
Do you want to raise your kids here, or in the States?
What do you miss most about the States besides your family and friends?
How are the States different from Germany?
Do you like German healthcare more?
What's your favorite thing about Germany?
Do you want to marry a German?
What's the biggest difference between America and Germany?
Because sometimes you're so exhausted from your own questions you ask yourself to deal with the inquiries of curious minds.
