40th Anniversary Report: If You See This Man Kick Him In The N** (Nose)
She had been taking pictures of flowers when he came up and started talking to her. He could not speak a word of English, and she could speak very little French, but 60 percent of English words are french in origin, just pronounced differently, so there was some communication going on. He was telling her that she was "tres belle," and wanted her to go for coffee and to get something to eat. She declined and he pointed to her ring finger (which has been ring-less for many years) and asked her if she was married. She assured him she was, and she had to get back to her apartment to her husband, but he gallantly insisted on walking her to the gate of the garden, and then gave her the double air kiss on each cheek -- you could say he french kissed her,. And get this -- she was not angry with him; she told me she was flattered!! Harumph! Here I have been refraining from flirting with all the beautiful young french women we have encountered in deference to our 40th anniversary and she is off being air-bussed by an old french coot.
The first thing on the agenda when we get back to the states is to get our wedding rings resized. I don't want any competition from any old geezers -- particularly when I've become one myself. Before we leave, I may just go cruise the Luxembourg Garden myself to see who I can find to flirt with. It would only be fair.
