I went on a little hike this evening with friends. It was a beautiful evening and a lot of fun. I don’t feel like writing much tonight – besides, I have another French midterm to study for – so I’ll just post a few more pictures. Don’t forget to hover over them for a little commentary.
Last Week: “Yeah, but urine is sterile anyway.”
Today: “I want to kick him in the balls.”
ETA: This article that the Slate‘s Explainer posted today.
I’m always interested in the origins and evolutions of words and phrases. Last week in French we learned about the pronoun en. So I asked, “D’où est l’expression Je m’en fiche?” And then another classmate followed up with asking about J’en ai marre. Both are expressions of fed-upness. They can mean something very-not-nice at all, depending on intent. The professor waited until after the lecture to explain it to us in English. Yay.
