Personal Note: In Germany, I am told that I am a Kickernd, and my haircutter was not able to spell it to me, so she said that the word is spelled like Kichererbsen, thru the word Kichererbsen I learned a new German word to best describe myself. So when I was in Austria, my friend, Thomas said I am a "kichernd", he said I am always giggling "Du bist immer am Kichernd" .
