I am not sure how much more bad news I can take so the results of the French election are welcome. Michael was glued to it and even watched the Le Pen/Macron debate in French. If only I had known that this was what it would take to make him voluntarily watch French TV.
I was messaging my friend in Paris during the election and asked her whether there was any chance she knew of some job that my child could do in Paris over the summer. Sadly, she did not. Her own daughter is back for the summer (she too is studying abroad) and my friend is hunting for a job for her. How glad you must be to have her back “pour l’Ã©tÃ©” I typed. “Pour l’Ã©ternitÃ©” Apple autocorrected which caused some mild confusion. I just thought you’d like to know how ineffective it is in all languages. I am driven demented with envy by my husband’s absolutely brilliant Android autocorrect.
I work with Teams at the office and yesterday as a colleague informed me that another colleague was on sick leave because he has a fractured clavicle, the suggested answer was “oh mon dieu”… Les joies du numÃ©rique !
Oh mon dieu seems appropriate somehow…
