I started writing about my former life as an au pair without giving it much thought, and—whoops!—the serial has already grown fat and enormous, with no end in sight. I, on the other hand, grow wearing of listing the previous posts in each entry, but want everyone to be able to follow along. And a index is born.
For those of you just tuning in, once upon a time I was an au pair (read: nanny, read: live-in babysitter) in Frankfurt am Main, Germany for a rather rich, rather eccentric family of seven. Fresh from the proofreader’s desk and into a rather awkward trial-by-fire initiation into German culture of about ten months. (At which point I called wedding and fled for earth in the escape pod.) Below you’ll find links to each post, as they are posted and each post will have a link to the index. Guten Apetit.
