The thing about her is  
French girl gets mixed up all the time.

"I am boring," she says.

"Bored," I say firmly. "You are bored, not boring."

"Okay, darling," she usually replies indulgently.

Tonight I am bored, bored, boring.

I find French girl fascinating. Part of the reason for this is because she is just so... French.

When we walk along the street together, she rests her wrist on my shoulder. Her arm isn't around me, it's simply draped on the shoulder closest to her as she lopes beside me. This strikes me as very French.

She makes me call her "mon petit chou" because she says it is sexy, the way we silly British people pronounce it.

"Would you like to hear a joke?" she recently asked me.

"Okay," I replied.

"What is the difference between a young woman and Paris?" she asked.

"I don't know. What is the difference?"

She shrugged and flicked the ash from her cigarette. "Paris will always be Paris."

She wanted to cook me Croque Monsieur for dinner, but I told her she'd have to do better than cheese on toast.

Things she finds in impossible to pronounce include: 'Desperate Housewives' and the difference between 'hungry' and 'angry'.

If left to her own devices, she will have a lunch that consists solely of fish-sticks and egg mayonnaise.

She once featured in a music video, in which she undresses and ties up someone she assures me is a famous French porn star. Her parents don't know about this.

Her home, near Lyon, has a pool, but for some reason she'd rather be living in a squat in Kentish Town.

You fancy her, yes?

Hee! I... don't know! Yes and no.

She lets me boss her around a bit too much for me to be able to be really attracted to her. She's not strict enough with me *g*

But if she was a little stricter, then I would, definitely.

Also, what a fantastic post. I've never met anyone French, but now I feel like I have.

Well, when you come visit, we'll be sure to hop on a train to Paris. I'm told they have some French people there ;)

This is really cool, in that it almost has a story but yet doesn't, and it's pretty and *evocative*. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you! I was sitting there feeling bored and wanting to post, and this was what emerged. I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

I would love to have my French teacher read that.
Because, you know, she is not actually French.
And that offends her.

By the way, she sounds like a real cutie ;)

Hee! One thing French girl is is... French *g*

She keeps calling me "body" in SMS messages because she thinks it's how you spell "buddy". :D
