French Word of the Day: héros (air-oh)- hero, as in “did you ever know that you’re my…”
I have some bad news and some good news.
The bad news is that my bakery ran out of pain au chocolat, which means that it’s possible for that to happen, which means the world just got a little darker.
The good news is that Brittany, my college roommate, sent me a package of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, which have chocolate AND peanut butter. They’re already gone. I was going to save them, but then I remembered that bakeries could run out of pain au chocolat, and the Reese’s were needed. Sometimes I eat my feelings.
She also gave me a historical trashy romance novel… which is the best kind. I give her a 20, which is the best French grade you can get. And also this personalized gold star that I made with Paint:
(Coincidentally “gold star” is one of the most commonly searched terms for finding my blog. True story.)
I also had a good interview today (you would think THAT would be my good news, but chocolate always comes before work). I think the woman really liked me. She’s British, so we both have our Anglophone-ness in common. She was excited that I knew French, because apparently no one on her team has a strong French background (she speaks Italian).
It’s a good thing they’re working in Paris.
I don’t know if I got it, but she’s British, and will therefore probably let me know BEFORE I’m suppose to have completed my internship.
*EDIT*: The British are way faster. I got the job!
Pain au chocolat count: 50… sigh
