Random Ramblings - Part III
The French say "laisser tomber" like gangsters say "forget about it". What does it mean?? Make up your minds!!!
Dropping Billy off at the airport reminded me that I haven't seen a wax paper toilet seat cover in a while. In fact, you're lucky if you get a toilet seat at all in most public restrooms around here. And, oh, instead of the little handle, the French use a myriad of levers, buttons, and hand-sized trick-door-style contraptions to flush their business. Each visit to the lou is followed by a multiple choice quiz: a. #1, b. #2, or c. all of the above. You can normally choose c (all options available) without fail, and yes, sometimes you still have to jiggle it a little. Ha!
