Paging all Francophones…Did you know that people speak French in North America? Just a myth, right? No, actually, it’s true. Tonight, I drove 97 kilometers from Burlington, Vermont (Holy crap! We have a French state in America!?! What’s going on?!) along 133 Nord and exited onto Rue Universite Ouest. I’m not really sure what to do with myself. Drink wine? Eat crepes? Hate America? No…I can’t do it. Comment ca va? I’m American! And I won’t eat your potatoes au gratin nor drive down your cul-de-sac. This Frankish imperialism has gone on too long. C’est la vie? La vie est America! Now if only we could keep George Bush in office for four more years.
