I started French classes at the Sorbonne. The teacher kept saying “Formidable!!!!” in the sense that we are doing awesome! All I kept thinking was ah! formidable! Run the other way! Maybe I don’t know the true definition of formidable in English?
The 50 year old ice cream man winked at me twice and said oooo tu es une belle americaine. wahaha chuckle chuckle I was just worried that they were out of Nutella ice cream. oh the travesty!!
My French doctor put me on 8 days of antibiotics and suggested that if I plan on drinking, to just not take that nights antibiotic. *wink*
Said doctor magically understood English this visit too. My amazing friend that came to help translate think he brushed up on his English for my visit, or something like that…?
I wrote an entire text that was longer than 1 sentence in French!
I got asked for directions twice, once by an expat, the other by a French woman, all in the span of 20 minutes in my neighborhood. what?!
oh and we had a lovely picnic in front of the Eiffel! Because it’s finally warmer than 52 degrees! I LOVE Picnics!!! in Paris!!
