If you haven’t noticed already, I’m an American. Like most Americans I only speak one language (although I do speak enough Spanish to have some fun in Tijuana). Unlike most Americans I am interested in learning other languages. So whenever my Lebanese friend at work tries to teach me French or Arabic phrases I try very hard to remember them.
Last week I remembered a French phrase I know that I didn’t mention to him. When I asked him voulez-vous coucher avec moi? He didn’t say ‘good job’ or ‘way to go’ he just laughed and said ‘No avec moi!’
And then I had that damn song stuck in my head all morning.
