Languaging

A tooth filling fell out eating good German bread. The dentist spoke enough English to explain; my friend translated the forms.

My skin dried out like a piece of old paper in the dry Berlin cold. The cosmetic skin-care lady and I managed to understand each other with her English, my German, and lots of pointing.

My car tyres needed air. I couldn't work out how to use the machine in the petrol station, so I gathered enough German to explain my problem. Helpful young man rushed out of his shop to do it for me.

We are languaging.
