How do you say "sexy beast" in German?



So, my jet-set (though not yet the "old Chevrolet set") sister Hayley is in Sardinia to visit a friend. We don't have to explore the jealousy that comes with writing that statement.

Anyway, she left me a (very calm, under the circumstances, if you ask me) message on the cell phone.

Apparently, she saw Michael Ballack, Germany's captain and midfielder, coming out of a restaurant or a club or something.

Point is, my sister saw him. And she said he's super-tall and gorgeous and everything she thought he could be.

Sadly, she did not walk up to him and talk to him in German about being a big fan (which would have been adorable), nor did she attack him with a chloroform-soaked rag and stuff him into her suitcase to bring home as a souvenir for her loving oldest sister (which would have been optimal).

Pity, that.

I just spoke with said sister. She is having a wonderful time and wondered if you had received her message. She wanted you to know that she actually "made eye contact" and then realized who he was. I might also add that she went sailing today and got sea sick. Does that help??

Dear God. She made eye contact with him?

*swoon*

Seasick, eh? Poor kid. I imagine sailing in Sardinia is less glamorous when you're puking over the side.

Ballack struck me as being a bit of a ponce, what with the blatant diving and all. Based on comments he made about the German MNT before the cup too, he sounded a little like a diva.

... but who can argue with that smile...

No one can, Will. No one can.

He also has a butt that won't quit and legs from here 'til Tuesday.

I thought I was the one with such a butt. Oh reality, you can be so cruel sometimes.

Sheena said...

Joshie, I thought we agreed that you have no butt to speak of...

Joshua said...

oh. sigh. I know. But my legs, at least from here to sunday?

Sheena said...

Sure. I'll give you Sunday.
