Merci cher gentilhomme!

To the lovely bearded man qui parlait francais at the cafe yesterday. I don't know if you were helping the others with work on their conversational French or what, but it was beautiful to hear the words roll off your tongue. It made me remember why I love that language, why I spent years studying it, and though I haven't used it in years makes me realize that I can get it back. It also gave me the boost I needed since I was off to a job interview in the afternoon where I needed to use it to get it! Hopefully that bit of inspiration I took from an eavesdropped conversation gave me the bit of luck I needed! —La fille en manteau rouge
