Yes I know my title isn't correct English. But on the way back home I had some fun in the bus. About some Dutch proverbs and sayings.
-Always is Kortjakje sick, in the middle of the week but sundays not.
-You're not allowed to look a given horse in the mouth.
-Even if a monkey wears a golden ring, it is and will be a ugly thing.
-All the craziness on a stick.
-When the cat is gone, mice dance on the table.
-Now's the monkey out of the sleeve.
-Make that the cat wise.
My mom's surname is really fun too. It's 'Donkers' witch could be easily into 'Darkness' in English.
It sounds really goth, tho: 'Erica Darkness'.
And my favourite:
-It's raining paipenstielen (Dutch word in English lol).
