Image on the book mark of key Dutch phrases

We’re actually cleaning things out of the house, but I couldn’t resist sharing the book mark I came across today. One side says KEY DUTCH PHRASES and includes such classics as “I didn’t see the sign,” and “I’d like to rent a bike” as well as “What happened?”

The kicker is number nine out of ten: Wil je met me mee naar huis?

Translation: Would you like to come home with me?

    Given that last line it might give a hint as to where you picked up the book mark.
    A good response to, “Wil je met me mee naar huis?” would be, “Dat legt er aan wat je in huis heeft voor te eten.” Or you could respond with, “Ik wil ook mij vrouw uitnodige.” However that could result in an even more surprising outcome.

    Great story.
