Oops, another forlorn thread desires new life.

One limitation though.

I think we can skip this original requirement.. Photos aren`t a must from now.

But if anybody wants...:

Today I heard that ancient rhyme about eyes and life. Amazing it is repeated a decade after a decade. I had fun with it as a little kid.

Do you know it?
Oczy niebieskie, życie królewskie.

Blue eyes, royal life.
Brown eyes, strange life.
Black eyes, poor life.
Green eyes, crazy life.
Cat eyes, golden life.

...they buy alcohols for gifts.

How did you know?

In another thread one member was surprised that Polish males are given flowers as gifts . He suggested they must be gay. Well, not necessarily.

Hmm. Maybe the member has a point ;)

Even driving in Poland I knew that but a freaking Russian pissed me off doing the same in Nj and almost made me crash.I thought he broke down and was stopping.Only after hearing his accent I realized why he did that.

Did you know that the first day of spring is also called the Truant Day by Polish students? Some students decided to skip school today, most with parental blessing. When I was a student, we used to play truant too.

Dzien wagarowania, pawian? Somehow can't imagine a "National Hooky Day" here in the US!

Never knew that. Thanks:-)

Actually, it is wagarowicza: Truant Boy`s Day.

Aha, much appreciated. Thank you.
I can now see the English/ German intereference in my Polish, much as the converse on occasion in your English!
