SALUT !

COMMENT ÇA VA ? 

It’s been a while, I know. There’s been a lot going on lately. But one good thing about the current situation is that I’m spending quite a bit of time at home , probably like you guys, so I have time to make new videos for you.

Why don’t we start with the new 

2020 sexy vocabulary. 

Wondering what it is? How about…

CETTE ANNÉE, C’EST LA MERDE ! 

C’EST LE BORDEL!

Yes, bad words, but what else is there to talk about Covid-19.

LA COVID-19 

Yes we say LA covid, it’s feminine. 

The gender has been established by the well respected Académie Française. And no, they’re not being sexist at all. 

The letters CO stand for Corona, 

VI for Virus, 

and D for disease. 

A disease  is feminine in French, UNE MALADIE. Therefore, we say LA COVID.

However, the word VIRUS is masculine, LE VIRUS. 

See gender equality respected. 

Next, if you want to talk about your life this year, you’ll probably need the following words : 

LE CONFINEMENT = the confinement

ÊTRE CONFINÉ = To be confined

ÊTRE ENFERMÉ = to be locked in

LA QUARANTAINE = the quarantine

L’ISOLEMENT = the isolation

Yeah, very sexy indeed… Not so great for dating though!

Now is the time for LA DISTANCIATION SOCIALE ET LES MASQUES. ET SI VOUS POUVEZ, METTEZ AUSSI DES LUNETTES DE PROTECTION.

À QUAND LA COMBINAISON INTÉGRALE? ON VERRA ÇA, CE N’EST PAS FINI!

It is also a time of confusion, LA CONFUSION !  Of contradictory advice and measures. I love creativity!

But don’t forget, LA PATIENCE EST UNE VERTUE. 

LA PATIENCE EST UNE VERTUE LA PATIENCE EST UNE VERTUE

Yes, madness might be looming, LA FOLIE.

ALLEZ, COURAGE ! ET APPRENEZ LE FRANÇAIS OU…

FAITES DES PUZZLES.

LISEZ, ÉCRIVEZ, DANSEZ, CHANTEZ. 

PÉTEZ UN CABLE, SI LE COEUR VOUS EN DIT.

MAIS SURTOUT NE VOUS LAISSEZ PAS ABATTRE !

For this too, shall pass. In the meantime…

RESTEZ ZEN, LES AMIS!
