One thought on “Mij best

  1. Anyone who has Dutch-speaking children (I do) knows another very different meaning of ‘mij best’. Spoken with a sullen expression it means anything but ‘fine with me’. In fact, it means ‘I don’t like it one bit, but nobody cares what I think and you’re going to do it anyway, so go ahead.’
