The Things They Say

Matt has been learning French.

“Mum,” he says, “see if you can guess what I’m saying: L‘hotel.”
“Er, hotel?”
“Yep. L’Café.”
“A café?”
“Yep. L’post.”
“A post office?”
“Yep. Ecoute.”
“What was that?”
“Ecoute!”
“No, sorry.”
“Listen.”
“What?”
“Listen.”
“What?”
“LISTEN - OMG - it means ‘listen.’” Walks away in disgust.


I shouldn’t tease him, should I!
