Searching for a few coconuts for a meeting

This is nothing profound or important. It just amuses me. I did a Pimsleur lesson in the car this morning and part of it was a dialogue about a guy trying to find his notes. A few notes, which in French is quelques notes.

It comes out sounding rather like coconuts. Je cherche quelques notes. I’m looking for a few notes. I’m looking for coconuts. Have you seen some coconuts? I have some notes for the meeting. I have some coconuts for the meeting.

More seriously, I’m beginning to appreciate more and more the quality of the lessons in Assimil NFwE. It’s funny how I didn’t notice so much how often things would be repeated in subsequent lessons. I mean, I had noticed it, but now it’s more apparent. Perhaps because my overall comprehension is a lot better? I don’t know.

J’ai une cicatrice sur le poignet droite.

Il n’y a que la nuit.

Je me suis lavé la poitrine, je me suis lavé les jambes, les cuisses, les hanches, les bras, les épaules, le visage, dans le bain. Je me suis rasé aussi ce matin.

Ça fait longtemps que j’écris en français. Pas que j’écrivais beacoup, euh, je ne sais pas en dire en français. Comment on dit anyhow?

D’accord. Peut-être ça suffit.

Une certaine personne, elle me manque. Je n’ai personne pour converser. Vraiment. Personne. Il y a une conversation dans la tete, mais ce n’est que moi.

Est-ce que je suis heureux? Euh, non. Est-ce que je suis malheureux? Non. Je ne sais pas ce que je suis. Je suis, au moins.

J’ai vu un oiseau nouveau hier soir. Un goldfinch en anglais.
