Bissignette!

I am from the region of Saint-Etienne in France.  In the local dialecte, “le parler gaga”, bissignette is an exclamation expressing pity, in a sweet way: “oh, poor thing!”  In my hometown, we used to say “beauseigne” when the object of pity was male, and “bichette” when the object of pity was female.   157 more words

Unprecedented, the news said, as though God had heard news of global warming and sent every bit of statewide emergency He had to make sure we remembered to call it “Climate Change.” Deep in the white fluff, children played and people died, the snow I played in a body pillow next to the Charles River. 425 more words
