Celebrating the 4th of July, German-Style

He had me fooled again, that wiley fiancé of mine.

"Oh, we won't do anything for the 4th of July. There's nothing going on in Hamburg anyway."

"Sorry Babe, I checked and I couldn't find a party for us to go to."

"We'll spend it in the U.S. sometime, don't you worry."

And then, after his gym session, he came home. I heard a sudden burst of The Star-Spangled Banner blaring in the living room. He called me to come down.

And there were all forms of American naughtiness! None of which I even knew you could buy here in Germany! Three giant deep dish pizzas (one of them simply called "Texas," which I find particularly hilarious)! Oreos for dessert! Pomegranate Arizona iced tea! 

And of course, perhaps the most American thing of all ........

Diet Dr. Pepper.

Happy 4th of July, everyone!!!
