Who’s On First

January 28, 2013

Here is your laugh for today…

Macele, my nanny, and I had the following conversation during lunch with the kids one day.

Macele (in very broken English): In English, what is “bon appetit?”

Me (in very broken French): …blank stare… We don’t have anything like that.

Macele, (in French):  What do you say when you hand someone their food?

Me (joking, in Lingala): Here! Eat!

Macele (skeptically, in French): You don’t say anything to them before they eat?

Me (in broken French): Well, actually, we say “bon appetit!”

Macele: Uhhhhhh

Me (in French-ish):  We say it in French…because there is no English word for it.

Macele:  Uhhhhhhh

I think she thinks I’m crazy.  Ah well.  It was a fun game.
