My friend’s French husband told her that he thought the ellipses at the end of my blog’s name “C’est la me . . .” were intended to replace the letters “rde” and that the real name is “C’est la merde” = “This is the shit” (pardon my French). Ahhhh Parisians, so pessimistic. I convinced her that the name was very innocent, just like me. I had no idea they were so vulgar. I might have to stop hanging around with them.
