Similarly, though not so bad, for me -- it feels decidedly weird to
address my father in German, and I typically try to avoid doing so
directly when I feel that I should use German (typically for the
benefit of other people's comprehension) by addressing someone else
and hoping he overhears. I can talk to him directly in German, though,
if there's no easy way out, but it's an effort.

Cheers,
