My Dear Reader, I leave for Paris in 8 days. Just a smidge over a week. Eeee! I’ve been checking the weather forecast and it has been cold and rainy. This a.m. I looked at the forecast for our arrival and it looks to be LOVELY! Sunny and in the 60’s. Ah…Paris in the Spring!
Last night, I was taking Buddy and Bug to karate, when Bug said:
“I hope you have a wonderful time in Paris Mamma!”
“Aw, thanks Love Bug! What would you like me to bring back for you guys?”
Buddy asked for a Euro or two.
“I would like a French cookbook,” Bug said decidedly. “That way I can learn to make croissants…specifically CHOCOLATE croissants!”
“I think that’s a great idea, Bug! I would love some chocolate croissants…” I made a mental note of his souvenir wish.
“Yeah Bug, then you can have a French cooking show,” laughed Buddy. He then proceded to give us a sample of the show in a really awful French accent. Here’s Buddy’s vision for Bug’s French Cooking Program:
Buddy: “Today we will learn to make French eggs! First mix the eggs in a bowl. Pour them into a hot pan. Did you remember to grease the pan first?”
Bug: “You didn’t say to grease the pan.”
Buddy: “You FOOL!” *slapping sound*
Bug: *screams like a girl*
Buddy (returning to a soothing Cooking Show voice): “Next we will make French Toast!”
Oh my lands! I was laughing so hard!
I had an idea, Reader…why don’t I bring back a souvenir for you? Tell me what you’d like to receive from Paris and Mamma will see what she can do. Obviously, this must be with in reason. For example, I can’t bring back a Frenchman for you. That would be kidnapping. But the first…oh…I don’t know 3? 5? Readers who respond will get a souvenior. You can respond here or on Facebook, as I know some of you prefer to post there. Remember, it has to be able to get through customs so no liquids. (I know you were thinking you’d like a bottle of French wine.)
Another thought! I had a friend who asked for addresses if you want a postcard from Paris. You could PM me your addy if you would like a postcard. That is something I am most certain I could accomodate.
One thing I am 100% sure that I can bring back for each and every one of you, (all 40. Ha!) is some great blogs! I imagine Paris will give me loads of Blog Fodder! Can’t wait! Can’t wait! Can’t wait! Can’t wait! Can’t wait!
