“Hi, is this the Gingerbread House?”

“Oh, gosh, sorry, no! My darling, you seem to have gotten quite a bit off the path to get here.”

“You wouldn’t happen to know how exactly I can get there?”

“Sweetiepie! Of course. Nothing easier than that!Easy-peasy-lemon-squeazy-easy! First, you have to get a cake.”

“A cake?”

“Yes, but not just any cake will do. It will have to be a black forest cake.”

“Ok, well, black forest cake it is then!”

“Darling, go to the corner that you see there, turn right and walk up until you get to the shop that sells black forest cake.”

“Sure thing, nothing easier than that.”

“Now, listen here, you will need a bottle of red wine. Do not show up at the gingerbread house without one.”

“Oh, dear, thanks for reminding me. I would have looked quite the fool, eh?”

“Nothing to worry about, you are save now! Once you leave the black forest cake shop, turn right and continue walking. You will see a Weimaraner at the corner. He always stands there. On that corner, take a left.”

“A Weimaraner? Like, a live one?”

“Oh, yes, sorry, not made from porcelain. They used to have a porcelain porcupine on that very corner, now it is a live Weimaraner.”

“Ah, see, that’s why. I recall the porcupine so well. Thanks for that added detail.”

“Sure, no problem. So, after you have turned left, keep walking. You will walk past a mountain of snow. People are sledding down from it.”

“Ok, the one at Potsdamer Platz? By the big train station?”

“Yes. Once you are there, you won’t be able to miss it.”

“Thank you so much!”

“Not to worry! Oh, one last thing: Do not eat the house!”

“Oh, dear, ok, sure!”

“And don’t believe the wolf telling you he is a grandmother. The wolf is the worst liar there is!”

“Thanks, thanks, I would have never found it without you!”
