Here are a few recent conversations:
Him: You ate the light in the bathroom.
Me: What? No, I didn't eat the light. You're crazy.
Him: No, not ate, Sam. H-ate.
The letter H, for the most part, is silent for the French. Take a look at the word hors d'oeuvre. Yeah, don't pronounce the h.
Me: I'm feeling under the weather.
Him: It's a nice day. You should be outside.
Me: But I'm not outside. I'm just not feeling well.
Him: Ahhhhh, under the weather. It's another one of those weird American expressions.
Sure, under the weather may be odd expression, but at least I don't have a cat stuck in my throat. (a tickle cough- and one of those weird French expressions). And that's what she says.
On that, I'll leave you with this new video from Mika, Elle me dit. (She says)
Have a great weekend!
