I want Dean and Cas to have a little girl who adores her Uncle Sammy and she tells him how much she loves him while braiding his hair and putting it in pony tails.
Her little skinny arms wrapping around his neck and saying, “You’re my favorite uncle!”
and he’d laugh saying, “I’m your only uncle.”
and then Dean would hear that and drop whatever he’s holding and say, “Shit, we forgot Adam.”
OH MY GOD!
Friendly reminder that in Finnish you don’t say ‘I got turned down’
you say ‘I got leather mittens’
you better not be shitting me
“Sain rukkaset” literally translates to “I got leather mittens”.
sam can you tell me why that is
According to the Institute Of The Languages Of Finland, there are some records of an old custom where, if a woman turned down a marriage proposal, she had to give the man a pair of leather mitts, possibly as a reference to a germanic tradition of giving gloves as a gift when making a deal (such as getting engaged; the woman giving back the gloves would be turning it down). The idiom’s been purely figurative for ages.
(There is a corresponding custom for January 1st, when women were allowed to propose to men. If he turned her down, he had to give her fabric for a skirt.)
so basically your entire culture revolves around apologizing via textiles?
