To all my sleepy Saturday morning neighbours, please accept my sincere apologies for the sudden burst of loud invectives, swearing (in both English and German) and stomping noises that immediately followed my reading of Leah McLaren's column in today's G&M Style section.
So, if your morning ablutions or coffee or walk with the dog were disturbed by my cries of "Sweet merciful crap woman, shut up shut up shut up!" and "Quatschkopf!" and "Why do you have a job?" and (again) "shut up shut up shut up!", and finally "You suck eggs Leah McLaren!", well, it's really all her fault.
