|We can meet at the resto for an apero. . . How does that sound?|
Apparently something dramatic happened to one of the girls because she told her friend she was confronted with an absolute "cata" -- translation, "catastrophe." Then they both laughed.
A few months ago we were walking through IKEA and a group of teens was talking about going to "the apart of Vero for an apero." In other words, they were planning to go to Veronique's apartment for an apéritif.
I find this to be so much fun. I have been trying to think of other words like these and can only come up with "ado, resto" and Caro or "adolescent, restaurant" and "Caroline." I know there are many, many more.
Please tell me the ones you know.
Off to Paris. A demain. . .
