comment Using definite article with people's names
@Emanuel en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Der_Dativ_ist_dem_Genitiv_sein_Tod. Surely its use is decreasing, even if extinction may be somewhat exaggerated...

@Ryan Being from and living in South Germany, instinctively yes, nearly everybody ("immigrants" from the North excluded) does it here.

@Matthias: While true I don't think the sentence benefits from a double ambiguity, a single one is wholly sufficient.

According to dict.cc "flame" also covers the German meaning required here, "girl-friend" or "mistress", so your translation seems ok for me as a German.

comment Gibt es das Wort Mülltasche?
@Carlster: Zustimmung für das Wort "Tasche" allein. Auf den Plastiktüten, die man beim Einkaufen bekommt, steht aber gerne: "Diese Tragetasche ist aus Polyäthylen hergestellt, ist auf der Müllhalde grundwasserneutral und in der Müllverbennung völlig unschädlich also umweltfreundlich." siehe servowiki.de/images/f/ff/Carrera-tuete-umweltinfo.jpg. Das sind aber genau die von mir gemeinten.

comment Does the noun “Kärtchen” have a plural form?
I like to refer to wortschatz.uni-leipzig.de/abfrage which has a complete declination for "kärtchen", listed after "Flexion".

comment Translation of “to maintain a skill”
I would translate "skill" to "Fertigkeit", not "Fähigkeit", because that more points in the direction of somewhat to train (as opposed to roll ones tongue, which is simply inherited). "Ausüben" would be the verb of my choice, but it requires different grammar.
