Lesson #2

FRANCE | Thursday, 4 October 2007 | Views [567] | Comments [3]

Okay, fine. Since you demanding people want another post, but since it is later here and neither Alex or I feel like writing a lot, I will provide you the one "French" interaction Alex and I have mastered:

Alex and Andrew walk into the Patisserie (bakery).

"Un baguette, sil vous plais?"

"??? ?? ???... un?"


"????? ??? ?? ? ????? ? ???. ??? ?? ??????? ? ?."

The woman hits a button and ".85" appears on the register. Andrew and Alex hand the woman a Euro.


The woman hands them 15 cents and a baguette.


"Merci, Au rervoir."

"Au rervoir."

Alex and Andrew eat baguette as they walk to train station.

The end.

Andrew, Andrew, Andrew, if you gave her one euro and she gave you 15 cents you probably got cheated, how much is a euro worth and why is she giving you american money, isn't the euro more than ours? And tired or not that is puny and not worthy of you. Wher is the excitement, adventure, danger? So I do think that now since you have made us endure this you both now owe us a really good long one. You two are sad to say the least, to try and sponge that off because it's later there, when we check on your progress or lack of it at all hours of the night and day, plus the fact you are both young, vibrant, healthy (esp. Shannon since she has not eaten any meat or meat by produts in 3 weeks) adults and I know you guys stayed up really late here on the computer so lets just get with the program here. love you both mom

When you get really really old...say my age... you are going to want reminisce.
You will look back at this site on some cybernotebook powered by a flux capacitor or moonbeams and you will learn that you took a trip to other lands and ate Big Macs, then looked at a crazy guy, then bought some bread. You will see that you were very tired most of the time from playing cards and not posting pictures of the Eiffel tower. You will look at each other and say..." Ahhhh les mémoires "
Keep us posted.
Obviously our life is boring in comparison or we wouldn't check this site every day. I did however buy a loaf of french bread at Kmart yesterday just to sort of share in your experiences.
