*The Michelle*

I like how the German language allows for people to have definite articles. In English, you wouldn't say, "the Michelle" in answer to the question, "Who writes this blog?"

But in German, you would. And because nouns have genders, it would be a cute little feminine "die," pronounced "dee," that goes along with my name.

"Wer schreibt diesen Blog?"

"Die Michelle."

Cute.

FYI: adding an article to a person's name is actually more common in the south of Germany.
