fourchette (fork)

Posted on Updated on

pronounced (“four-shay”)
understandably, a popular name for French restaurants in America

Among the assorted ways to learn a language, one of the most effective is by humiliation and necessity

Picture yourself in a Paris grocery:
Looking for a Fork
Chasing-down someone for a confrontation, where you are under the impression that the louder you say FORK, the better you are understood
Attempting to pantomime a Fork – even using the universal symbol for “Fork”
Utilizing maximum body-language
Only to fail

Some Parisians have a low tolerance for those not speaking French
Which is the beauty of Paris!

Ended-Up stumbling upon a fourchette on my own
