So, the argument goes, if you need external motivation for things you need to do - like work, study, thesis, laundry, whatever,
then know that
'when you do better, we do better'. (SW)

Lied on the bed

##Dutch
Sometimes, my brain says something between Dutch & English, and instead of saying bye or dag, today, I went: "Bah!"
(Which is definitely better than the other way around, between dag and bye: "Die!" :)
