FUNNY ON FRIDAY----FRENCH FRIED!!

Jacques Johnson
was beyond
embarrassment
when his
Grandmother dropped
him off in front
of his new friend, Chloe's house.

She was a lovely young girl that
had offered to tutor
Jacques.
It wasn't bad enough that
Gramma had chosen a
French name for him....
or that she
drove a bright
yellow, rusted-out,
beat up old
Renault
(made in France)
but when she
yelled..
"Make sure you practice 
a lot of
Frenching with that
new frienda yoars"....
he liked to have died.

Gramma meant well
but with her
failing hearing she
had only heard part of
the conversation
when he told her
that he was going
to be practicing
the
French Horn
with his new tutor.

When he got home
he told his Mother
that he would be
walking to any further
tutoring lessons.

  9. Hi Diana, I'm in the same boat with Sylvia above. Dennis has some hearing loss (he can't decipher consonants very well) and at times it's hysterical what he thinks I've said. Have a great weekend! xo

  13. Hahahah. This could be a true story with my late Grandpa. He couldn't hear good and replaced sentences with what he thought he heard. We always got a laugh out of it. We called him "Mr. Magoo". Remember him?
    Now, My daddy is about at that point.

  16. My Grandmother used to love to meet our high school boyfriends. She would ask their names, their Mother's names and so on. She would start out asking.." wasn't your Mother a Miller before she married and did she have a cousin names Bess?" She would go on and on and would try to convince us we were all cousins!!! We would die of embarrassment and warned our cousins not to dare let her meet their friends. There is always that one relative that could really make you want to crawl under a rock! I love this story, brought back memories.
    hugs,

  33. Very funny....I am French...I love the pics of the grand-kids ready for SPD. When I was growing up in very Irish Boston, I asked my mother why we weren't Irish, her response,"We're French, it'll grow on you." It did indeed.
