Another catch up post, while the main bunch of participants has already reached the letter 'T' I'm still on 'M'. So here is some 'M'- stitching - a Meerschweinchen, German for guinea pig (Meerschweinchen literally means 'sea piglet', as in 'piglet that came from overseas'..but the animal is cute, in any case!)
I'm nor sure if the word I picked this month is actually intranslatable, but it is one I particularly like - 'menscheln' (literaly 'to human'), usually used as 'Es menschelt' (It humans). It's used when stuff happens that is especially human in nature, and can be used in both directions - both with stuff that leads to conflicts, like jealousy or envy, but also when showing empathy and warmth, especially in situations where those are not common usually. It's usually used to describe 'human weakness', but also in situations where this 'weakness' is positive in nature (like not making a tough business decision out of empathy).
