yesterday at the art store,
the sweetest man was helping me find supplies,
while teaching me the words in french.
it was going along fabulously, until:
i was motioning, and he thought: knife, eraser, crayons.
the word in french is: affutoir
incidentally, it's the only thing i remember from his lesson.
when i got home, i realized that there are only 2 words I know (remember) in all 4 languages i've ever studied:
pencil sharpener & french fries
spanish: sacapuntas (my alltime favorite word in spanish)
english: pencil sharpener
spanish: papas fritas
english: french fries
i guess this says about me:
i love potatoes and i'm passionate about art supplies.
sounds about right.
