Be happy in the thought that he will look very "old" to her - as in her memory, he is still the young sexy thing that he was
You however will look just as gorgeous as you always do
You've never seen Grynch..have you?!

I have in my minds eye - and i find him very attractive.*

The physical appearance interests me very little, as it doesn't last, and is just a matter of luck - and can be changed in an instant by a wayward match, drunk driver, genetic disposition, etc.


*no, i dont want to sleep with him!!


Two for you knobbly knees!

in France the tradition is to wish someone "merde" (shit) before a test. The origin is also from the theatre/acting world: when a play had big success there would be a lot of horse-drawn coaches in front waiting therefore generating a pile of shit on the street.....good sign indeed at the end.
That was our 2sec cultural moment.
If I'd have known these two things earlier, I would have happily passed by his doorstep, this morning - as I'm sure others would also have done.

Merde! (not being rude honest- it is what you say for good luck! /equivalent to 'break a leg'). Looking forward to know how you got on (flying colours I'm sure).

In that case, good luck. And I am sure you can hold the congratulations safely until the result and use them when needed.

English Comprehension test ? What is it that you do ?
