In line today, Martin was wearing a new hat. The way he’d pulled it on his head, it resembled a beret.
Mrs. D. commented on this to him.
“Oh Martin, your hat looks like a French beret,” she said.
“You know, Martin, I’ve been to France, in French, your name would be Mar-tan,” I interjected with my best French accent.
Joining in on the fun, Mrs. D. added, ‘Ah, oui!’
Without missing a beat, Martin replied, ‘I have a Wii at my house.”
“No, not that kind of Wii,” I explained.
At this point, Audra had come over and tried to clarify, “Oh, you mean like wee when you use the bathroom.”
“No, ‘oui’ is how you say ‘yes’ in French,” I said.
Both Martin and Audra looked confused. With that, we headed outside and ended our lesson in French. It’s good to be back.
