Dimanche 1er mars: ce que les mots veulent dire.

Nous sommes, je crois, de plus en plus nombreux à constater que notre société est de moins en moins paisible. Ce n’est pas faute pourtant d’invoquer sainte convivialité, de prôner à longueur de discours les vertus du “vivre ensemble”, d’organiser des journées de tous ordres, des secrétaires, de la femme, du handicap, du patrimoine, contre l’homophobie, du prout, et des fêtes, des voisins, des quartiers, des jardins, de la musique, de la mirabelle, de l’Huma, où coulent à flots la Kro, la sangria et l’hypocrisie. 848 more words

"AHH, c'est toi l'Anglaise!?"

“Mais oui ça c’est moi, l’accent s’entend si fort que ça?” I say, laughing, as I meet any new person. Normally they’re a friend of a friend who’ll have mentioned the existence of an English girl at the lycee, or someone in halls who knows someone else who knows another person who’s cat once sat on my lap. 620 more words
