Everything is Oh-Quai!

Thanks to the TravelMarx for the pun, I have my theme for April. Actually it couldn't be more fitting. As Mr. Wild Dingo and I continue to massacre the French language, we are forgetting how to speak English. The French use the verb "faire" (to do or to make) quite a bit as in "faire cuire," which literally translates "to do or make cooking."

The other day, when I was just finishing a load of laundry, Mr. Wild Dingo had commented he was out of socks.  I told him, "I'm making socks in the dryer."

The sad part:  he understood exactly what I meant.

  1. Nice down-stays!! And to quote Mango -- Loki you could see those ears from space. Actually I think I can see them here in California! Vous avez les chiens tres formidable!! (Yep, 5 years of French while living 30 minutes from the Mexican boarder. I'm an excellent planner...)

    Happy Weekend!

  2. I'm with everyone else. Making socks would be a huge money maker since they usually vanish from the dryer!

  3. Yup, a dryer that made matching pairs of socks would be a gold mine. Can woo believe - sometimes we even get blamed for missing socks? Like we'd have any use for them….
