    „Danced with a stranger in a foreign country“ – England, hehe. No idea who he was…what with him being a stranger and all ;-)

    „Fired a rifle“ – Ich war ganz, ganz, ganz früher einmal mit dem Papa auf der Schießstatt in Mariazell. Weiß nicht mehr viel, außer, dass ich total stolz auf mich war, weil ich (mit viel Hilfe) die Zielscheibe getroffen habe. Außerdem hatte irgendwer die Tür zu dem Raum offengelassen, wo die Zielscheiben drin sind. Und ich bin natürlich rein. Und stand dann auf einmal leicht verängstigt zwischen Schützen und Zielen. Ahem.
