Better to be slapped with the truth than kissed with a lie.
Off to the supermarket for some Creme Fraiche to go with the Tarte Tatin. Nestled amidst the jars of cream on the supermarket shelves ' Creme aux Cepes '. How many shoppers, like Angus, pick up a jar of cream, only to discover when they get home that it's got mushrooms in it ?
Doughnuts,' doonys' as the French apparently call them, for sale at €1.80 each in the airport cafeteria.That's nearly $2.50. Have doughnuts become a luxury food ? Can you still buy a doughnut for a $ in the US ?
'The font' attends a performance in the stock room of a bookstore/wine bar in Paris. A group of American sophomores promising '' Full-on immersive theater ". At midnight I text to find out what it's like. ' Long ' comes the reply. Proof that one word can say it all.
Today the attention of the magic duo turns to the driveway. A line of holes dug in the gravel. Not just any holes but deep pits that youthful PON's can hunker down in. Bob gets caught in flagrante delicto. He's actually standing in the hole. His nose and jowls thick with mud and dust. Sophie, despite her jowls and paws being similarly caked, does her version of the George Washington story. '' I cannot tell a lie. It was entirely Bobs fault ".
