A little bit of fun


Au Marché

Bonjour Marie-Lou,
(bisou, bisou, bisou)
T’a mal ou ?

La hanche, le genou –
un peu partout.
Me too.

Translation of this regularly heard exchange among my age group:

At the Market

Hallo Mary Lou.
(air kisses, three)
Where does it hurt?
My hip, my knee,
just about everywhere.
And me.
