I enjoy reading a little Dutch. WIllem, back in "the old country" is a great communicator even under the most difficult circumstances. Whatever goes on inside his head might not be totally revealed, but we can fill in he blanks.... And he has an unerring sense of humour which is motivating. Of course, there is another payback for me, nurturing a long lost love for the "Nederlanse taal"..
The other day, he set me a puzzle (in Dutch): "Die foto's gingen wel, mooie platen maar ook hier en daar een leutertuugje. Als je weet wat dat is Marius, dan stuur ik je een taart." [challenging me to find the meaning of "leutertuugje"].
The obvious solution was to Google it!
That's the equivalent of a blank stare, combined with a useless suggestion from Google.
No fun there either...
Of course any moment now, Willem will be the #1 search result for "Leutertuugje", Although, come to think of it, we might have a competition about that!
Anyway, with a little help from "Kramers Woordenboek", I looks that it might relate to leuterpraatje (meaningless twitter) So I'll take a stab at it meaning "worthless composition" or even " a piece of meaningless eye candy".
So Willem, how did I go? Worth a prize? BTW, Australian customs do not allow the importation of food in the mail. Alternatively, you can use 't Winkeltje" Although a luscious picture of a "taart" (geen leutertuugje) on your website would do...
