In a big house in Germany lived a lady who twisted her tongue. Robert understood only that he was her Grandson. Questions to answer made Robert  escape from the supper table. Sauerkraut or  red cabbage was a taste Robert would hate.  A piece of bread spread butter and honey upon his plate. A chocolate surprise egg  followed for a treat to reward Robert for something healthier to eat.

Robert entered the kitchen for a mouthful  of his Grandmothers bite, but she had a long slice of  fish against Robert´s wish when the tongue twister  said ´Esse´, Robert would vanish speechless.

Whereabouts in Germany does, or did, your grandmother live, Robert?
The only places I've visited there are Cologne, Frankfurt and Munich.
