A Meditation in Ink: Meditation 12.6.18

A Pen and Ink doodle mediation in blues and oranges plus a blurb about Chancellor Angela Merkel and "Sh!tstorm"
Dear Henry,

The German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the known conservative and career politician said "Sh!tstorm" out loud, in public, in front of the media, and on purpose. This wasn't the first time she said it either. 

Because I am completely immature, I am still giggling like a twelve-year-old.

The term actually holds an entry in the German national dictionary - it means "storm of outrage on the internet" and doesn't carry near the same "naughty" connotations in German as it does in English, although the German dictionary does note that it is an English word.

As much fun as it was to think that she said something outrageous, she really didn't and I am sure she would never, ever use the direct translation, which would be something along the lines of "Scheisse St├╝rmt" because that would be inappropriate.

xoxo a.d.
