Compared to You I Am

It was at a party, and my friend X.Y. tried to crush a beer can against his forehead and failed. I don't mention his name because of the humiliation.

Not humiliation because of the failure, but because of what happened next.

I said to him, "You are such an idiot."

He replied, "Compared to you I am."


"That's right," I said. "Compared to me, you are."

It was hard for him to come back after that one.

I use this space as a brain dump, almost a note pad.
Lots of English translations of Dutch information, especially if I think something could also be useful for others. For speed I start with Google translate and then put on finishing touches myself.
