Nostalgia

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Sep-21-2004

Mr.Jo has been here since last week and today a repair man came to take a look at our washing machine, which has died. A bad and terrible thing in a house with three children, two of which are girls who change their clothing…hourly.

When he pulled out a special lamp in order to do an internal exam- so to say- of the machine, he said- to no one in particular – that he was going to take a keekje.

I found myself smiling and realized how much I enjoyed hearing these little bits of dialect once again.

They sound so pleasantly comfortable, the verbal equivalent of a flannel nightgown.
