|So much discussion strolling the Seine...|
When tour guiding, I get asked all sorts of fun questions. Do I like Paris? Do French people hate Americans? Where can I buy children’s chewable aspirin? You know, normal things that people are curious about when visiting.
Sometimes, however, my responses aren’t exactly what the client thought (or wanted) to hear. I’ve been making mental notes and have decided to put fingers to keys and share a few of the responses that have raised a few eyebrows lately…
Q: Does your family visit constantly?
A: No. Well, that’s a lie. My brother came for a few days while visiting his girlfriend in London, but we only saw each other for a drink or two. The rest of my family has some Francophobic tendencies that might only be rationalized by the German blood in our veins. World War II is over. We’re all friends again. Get a passport and come visit.
