Earlier today.

Wife: "The sooner you finish your homework, the sooner we can leave for the zoo."
Mr 6, a bit tired from his school day and dreamy: "Hmmmm?"

Wer erinnert sich noch? Vor ziemlich genau einem Jahr haben wir die Sache mit der Corona-Ampel übern Haufen geworfen, eine Woche nach ihrer Einführung. 🇦🇹
