    My clothes are always “silent”. Haha, just kidding! Most of the time I like wearing black.
    Your questions are always fun Yvonne. They inspire me to have a look on your site . You awake my curiosity and bit by bit my vocabulary will grow up. Learning with fun, enjoying the process is the most important for me. I love the English language!
    Thanks Yvonne

    Girls are really into this type of things, I don’t know why. Once in a blue moon you hear a boy might dress in such a way.
    By the way, Bettina I have a great slang for you and I want our English Guru to comment on it:
    pique your curiosity; and if something piques your curiosity then it makes you interested in and you as a result follow it to get more of that special thing.
