Things I Wouldn't Understand. Things I Shouldn't Understand, part deux
Bonjour, mes amis.
Je m'appelle Yves-Gaston.
Bienvenue to my tasteful maison.
Oui, it is just a small pied-a-terre here in Pennsylvania where I take some time for myself when Paris gets too crowded avec les touristes.
Fumez-vous? Would you like a Gauloise? Yes, it is all I see fit to smoke, I am afraid.
Here, come sit by my giant ashtray while I tell you all of the bon mots I have learned about Napoleon from this old issue of Paris Match I found in my closet.
Oh how impressive of you to notice. What a cultured eye you possess, ma petite choux!
Believe it or not, I hand stitched it myself. Les can-can girls are tres Francais, n'est-ce pas?
Tres, tres Francais.
Oui....I find MacCall's Complete Book of Stitchery to be the only true source of such breathtaking, truly Continental design.
Where are you going?
Why do you look so scared?
Oh well... Au revoir, mes amis nouvelles.
