Write a dialog between two people at the top of the Eiffel Tower
Person1: I dropped a dog from here once.
Person2: What happened?
Person1: The dog exploded.
(As a matter of fact we were 14 years old.)
Totally unrelated to that, and for reasons I am completely unable to explain, I know exactly one line in French: "Le croissant de ma tante est sur la table."
For those of you, like me, who do not speak French, this means "My aunt's croissant is on the table."
Not only do I not remember why I know this, I can not even recall how long I have known it.
I do remember my dad taking me and my brother to eat sushi one night, and whilst waiting to get into the restaurant I kept saying this and my dad, who does in fact speak French (one of his eight languages) and we would both be hysterical.
But now, years later, and thanks to Cyril Our Local Frenchman, I have added a new phrase to my French arsenal:
Combien coute le poulet?Which means: "How much for the chicken?"
It also alternatively means "How much for the cup?" because for reasons beyond my (or Cyril's) comprehension, chicken is slang for cup in French. Wonders never cease.
