Jom main cikgu-cikgu! Remember when we were small, one friend will be standing in front and play the teacher while others are sitting in front of that person and play the students?
Let's do it!
I'm the teacher and I'm the student in this posting. But you can participate too:)
Make a story based on this word as a figure of speech: P.R.E.T.Z.E.L
It is quite common in German to say, "Today the sun is really pretzling down (the sun is really stinging)."
Today, the sun is not pretzling down at all. Even though I am sweating as the temperature in my room is as hot as a newly baked pretzel, the rain outside made it impossible for me to go out and enjoy myself. Luckily, it did not disturb my Astro connection. I still managed to watch one of my sweethearts by the name of Mr. Bastian Schweinsteiger;P
Bavarians have a number of expressions related to the pretzel. A Brezensoizer (pretzel salter), perhaps originally a baker's term, is a person doing lowly work. Saying "I’m not your pretzel salter!" would mean, "I’m not your servant".
I am your superior and you are my staff. So, if I'm giving you an instruction and dateline, please follow. I'm not your pretzel salter! Please remind yourself that I'm not receiving any instruction from you.It's the other way around.
* Waaaaa....bunyi bossy tak?
Another saying is "he got pretzeled" (gebrezelt), meaning "he crashed", for example, skiing down the mountain or falling off a bike.
My friend got pretzeled near the eating place recently. She was wearing high heels that day, The next time she wanted to go to the eating place, she changed to slippers. She didn't want to get pretzeled again!
One can also say "I pretzeled him one", meaning, "I gave him a punch in the nose or face"
My anger has not yet been subsided and I'm feeling like pretzling a bimbo!
... "he pretzeled down the road at 100 km/h", meaning, he "really stepped on it"
I have to stop being angry, otherwise I won't realise that I was pretzeling down the road at 100km/h. It's not good. I'm not up to that standard yet.
On the other hand, a "pretzeled appearance" means "very stylishly dressed or combed".
The reason why I liked Zainal Arief, Jack Bass and Will Garner is because of their pretzel appearance. Hehehe.
An electrician might say, "The wire pretzeled me one", meaning "I got sizzled or shocked".
Green pretzeled me when he missed the ball in England's game yesterday.
So, folks, what do you think about the word pretzel?
It's not just food;)
