|"Obviously! You confirmed 'in' the harbor: but you should have confirmed 'on' the harbor."|
(Ed. Note: I think he should have confirmed, "at" the port/harbor as in "a la". . . But then again, what do I know?)
VOUTCH not only has a sense of humor which perfectly resonates with mine, but also he somehow manages to deeply understand my problems about living in France.
Number 1: I constantly make errors when speaking. Prepositions can be a problem.
Number 2: Verbs, forget about it.
Number 3: I speak almost exclusively in the present tense. You would be surprised how creative one can be staying in the moment.
Number 4: I do have a handful of past tense verbs at my disposal and maybe three in the future. However, I tend to use the verb "to go" as my future "crutch" if you will. As in, "I'm going to the market to buy vegetables for soup the minute I finish today's post." See? I don't need some complicated "will" verb involved in the structure.
Thus, these VOUTCH drawings and sentiments reflect my problems and my challenges. Also, I'm asking Santa for a GPS. I know where I've been, but I don't necessarily know where I'm going. (I suppose that could have many interpretations.)
It's another gorgeous autumn day here -- crisp and sunny. Magnificent.
I hope you have a beautiful weekend wherever you are.
And, yes, I really do have an appointment for a facial this afternoon. My great pal Christine, co-owner of our local pharmacy, called yesterday to invite me to have a "soin" with a new line of products she plans on buying. Of course I'll tell you all about it next week.
A demain, mes amis.
