A couple weeks ago I was in France, while we were there it was warm. So we decided to go swimming in a swimmingpool.It was a nice swimmingpool, sadly I accidently cut my finger there.
So i went to someone who worked to ask for a band aid.
There is something you should know, I am not French neither am I English, I am dutch and at that moment I didn’t remember how to say band aid in neither of the languages.
So I walked to her and said.‘I think something went to wrong.’ and then I showed her my finger. Luckily she understood and we walked to another room to put a band aid on my finger.
There were multiple women in there, while one went to get the first aid kit. The other staid behind and talked to French to me and I just nodded.
Eventually they found out I didn’t speak French, the lady who brought me there asked.‘Are you Dutch?’ So i just nodded. So someone started talking German to me.
I do speak some German, but I was more focused on my finger, so I didn’t understand her, I only heard ‘Brecken’,
i genuinely thought:My finger isn’t brokenLuckily my finger wasn’t broken I could swim again with my band aid on my finger.
