You'll be alright....a smart, young fella like yourself should have no problem passing that silly exam.

Break-a-leg (you are an actor .... aren't you?)

P.S. Does that mean that you may have to work for a living, instead of forum trolling?

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.

in all these international orgs only temporary and external staff come to office to spend time on forums...while permanent staff just stays at home and do not even bother to come.

I think I need a drink

oh......

best to concentrate on the exam just for the moment.

Be encouraged 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

Good luck for the exam!
