Worms is a place in Germany.

Are there worms in your garden?

Worms are good for the soil.

Are you a keen gardener?

Siegfried came to Worms to sit in the garden by the river and play his lute and sing love ballads to Kriemhild. That was his plan. He wanted to marry her. He had heard about her and he wanted to marry her.

Is it normal to ask the father for the bride’s hand in your culture?

Kriemhild ruled Burgundy with her brothers Gunther, Goethe and Floete. Gunther was the eldest and made all the important decisions in the kingdom.

Do you have an elder sibling?

Goethe was the next in line and devoted his time to research and self-education and waiting to become king in the event that it was necessary to take over.

Do you try to educate yourself?

Floete was a great musician and patron of the arts and organised all the royal entertainment and education. He was kind of like a minister of culture.

Do you think cultural assets should be protected by the government?

While he was traveling to Worms, Siegfried stopped and rested by the river.

Have you ever been to the Rhine?

He caught some fish and he made a fire to cook them.

Did he use worms as bait to catch the fish?

Suddenly a dragon attacked him.

What is the difference between a Chinese dragon and a European dragon?

He pulled out his sword and he slew the dragon. He killed it.

Have you ever killed an animal?

When he killed the dragon, some of its blood splashed on him. It was magic blood. Dragon’s blood is magic.

Did you know that dragon’s blood was magic?

The blood of the dragon enabled Siegfried to understand the language of the birds and beasts.

Do you know the story of Doctor Dolittle?

It is another famous story about a man who could understand the language of the birds and the beasts.
Siegfried could understand what the birds were saying.

Can you whistle like a bird?

One of the birds in a nearby tree told him to hang the dragon’s body from the tree and drain its blood.

Does that sound horrible to you?

Then he was supposed to wash in the blood.

Do you wash your hands after you go to the toilet?

Washing in dragon blood made him invincible. No weapon could harm him.

Are weapons common in your city?

When he was washing in the blood of the dragon, a leaf from a linden tree floated down from the tree and fell on Siegfried’s back. No dragon blood fell on this place and so this was his weak spot. It was his “Achilles heel”.

What was Duryodhana’s weak spot in the Mahabharata?

In German the linden tree is symbolic of lovers and of matters of the heart.

What is the flower of the heart in your imagination?

Siegfried continued on his journey to Worms and the news of his victory over the dragon traveled faster than he did. By the time he arrived in Worms, people had already heard that he had killed the dragon and washed in its blood.

Did the birds spread the news of the dragon’s defeat and Siegfried’s invincibility?

In Worms there was a man called Hagen. He was a bad egg. He couldn’t lie straight in bed at night. He had a crooked smile and a crooked nature. He was a slimy scheming crooked character.

Do you know anybody like that?

Hagen was very dishonest but many people did not know this. They did not know this because Hagen was clever. He was clever and he was careful. He was careful to pay attention to people in power. He was careful to remain on very good terms with them. He was careful not to make enemies in high places.

Do you know anybody like that?

Hagen was an advisor to King Gunther.

What is the name of the King of Sweden?

Hagen had heard the story of Siegfried and the dragon’s blood. He remembered it well.

Do you have a good memory?

Everybody loved Siegfried. He was extremely popular with the common people everywhere. This made him very very powerful.

Do you think power always corrupts?

It made him politically dangerous.

Is politics a dangerous business in your country?

Hagen was a very political man.
He was very ambitious and he wanted power
He was very ambitious and he wanted power but he could not get it by fighting
He was very ambitious and he wanted power but he could not get it by fighting because he was not strong enough.
He was very ambitious and he wanted power but he could not get it by fighting because he was not strong enough so he tried to get more power by scheming and negotiating.
He was very ambitious and he wanted power but he could not get it by fighting because he was not strong enough so he tried to get more power by scheming and negotiating and playing people against each other.

Do you know the expression, “divide and conquer”?

Hagen told King Gunther about Siegfried and the dragon’s blood.

Was Gunther jealous?

He warned him about Siegfried’s power. He warned him to hide his sister. Kriemhild stayed in the tower.

Kriemhild stayed in the tower and watched Siegfried arrive.
Kriemhild stayed in the tower and watched Siegfried arrive but she did not want to meet him.
Kriemhild stayed in the tower and watched Siegfried arrive but she did not want to meet him because she did not want to break her vow.

Do you always keep your promises?

Siegfried wanted to meet Kriemhild but nobody offered to introduce him. Everybody was a little afraid of Siegfried. Suddenly there was some bad news. Another tribe of Germans was attacking.

Have you been to Germany?

They were the Saxons.

Who are the Anglo-Saxons?

Siegfried helped Gunther to defeat the Saxons. They became friends.

Is your best friend a friend from military service?

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!
