League of scary strange people
Dad went to a biergarten to meet an expat group called the League of Accidental Hausfrauen. Dad's not a "frau", but he frowns, so I guess he qualifies. And how do you become a hausfrau by accident? You start the day in a house — did they forget to leave? If so, how did they wind up in this biergarten? Maybe they're accidentally frauing the wrong house. Or maybe the name was shortened from "Leauge of Frauen who accidentally got kicked out of their haus because they were too loud", because that sure describes the mob of people we met. I think they should be called "League of people Dad talks to when he's supposed to play with me." But there were five other babies to meet, so I'll forgive Dad for preventing my eating gravel. This time.
