Hustysk Helens Adventskalender
Idiom: Du hast einen Vogel.
Literal Translation: You have a bird.
How to use it: It is Günther and Elvira’s anniversary and he wants to take her out. Günther has already reserved a table at a really nice restaurant in the HafenCity in Hamburg and has a little jewel box in his pocket. At breakfast, he reminds Elvira of their date night. She tells him her experiments in the lab didn’t work yesterday so she plans to spend the night with her research. “You want to sleep over next to your bacteria?!” Günther says annoyed. „You have a bird!” A bird? Yes – this is the German way to tell Elvira that he thinks she is crazy.
