Hey you were the one with that nasty bite. And all I could do was to act on my silly reflexes...
I wouldn't have done that, though, if I had had reasons to believe you had been in danger. (Damn, I should have listened in school when the teacher told us about English conjunctive constructions. But you probably know what I mean. Give and take a couple of "had"'s.)
It was probably smart of your doctor to give you antibiotics first. Staphylococcus aureus
infections are much more dangerous and more common (well, you've probably read the wikipedia article yourself)
Zilch's comment made me think I'd been an ass. Or an idiot. I felt like he was talking behind my back. Right in front of me! IN VIENNESE!
I ran his comment through a translator and this is what came back,
in everyday language, if one of "bites" speaks, hey? t even the "spider bites". I'm sure there? and the white doctor?, there? Spiders are not insects.
What kind of silly translator was that?
