Ӧhe 14.7.1998: Ordnung and More Ordnung

Just had one of those absolutely maddening German discussions in which we decided, through endless back and forth and consideration of every possible eventuality, who would sit where today, as we each work on some academic (or, in the case of T. and K., reading) project.

Why don’t simple manners sort things like this out—we all know where we’d least disturb the other. So it makes sense to light there, silently. Is this all about German order, or that we need to have each room used for what it’s meant for?
