Friday Bonus Round: German Idiom

die beleidigte Leberwurst spielen: to get in a huff or play the prima donna

zB: Immer wenn sie ihren Willen nicht durchsetzen kann, spielt sie die beleidigte Leberwurst.

auf Englisch: "Whenever she can't get her own way she gets in a huff."

(from the Guide to German Idioms by J.P. Lupson)

My grandfather passed away last year - he has alzheimers. I remember how he didn't always know what was going on - but his eyes always lit up when he saw me. I'm not sure he always knew who I was - but I think he knew I was someone he loved.

Keep holding your dad's hand and he will always know you're someone special!
