Once I was eleven years old, my daddy told me, go get yourself a wife, or you'll be lonely.
If you want to translate Jonkoltz's comment, it should be: "Takk, mor".
et tak - a roof
Ha det bra!
How can you know that he is mean? Unless you wanted to say "means" or "meant" (sarcasmception xD)
Ooo! A sassy Jane Austen reference (is there another kind?) ....nicely done Peregrineza.....one lingot for you!
Now it's your turn, to be alone,
find a wife and build yourself a home.
