La petite note

What is this with French and being posh ?! Is it just me or are there people belonging to that same club ? There are thousands of languages that one can learn,most importantly Spanish,being in a continent where it is absolutely necessary…But non, one would rather learn French…with absolutely no plans even in the distant future to go to France !! Because I guess,it’s so chic to say a little and then, even though no one else other than you might understand what you just said …and sometimes not even the les Français ..because of your so very faux accent….

Well, you have to agree this much …everything sounds so much sweeter,elegant,fashionable when said in French…And every piece of thing, is a thing to die for if it’s from that faraway fairy tale land of France…And perhaps,even if someone abuses you verbally in French, it would sound sweet to your ears !!

Actually, what’s there not to love about France and French and being French ? The Sel Gris, the fleur de sel, the miel de lavande,Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon BlancThe melt-in-ur-mouth croissants,mousse,crème brulee,madeleines,tart tatin,eclairs,gateaux,quiche,coq au vin, ratatouille…..Yum!!

The French films …so quintessence- Juliette Binoche,Gerard Depardieu,Audrey Tatou, …..The Chanel- so expensive and out-of-reach…all so more enticing, the paintings of Renoir…..All so mystifying and enigmatic !!

So …I guess it’s back to where one started…enjoying all that’s French and feigning French…Eh bien, tout le meilleur ( Well then,all the best ) !!
