Elbow treePosted: October 10, 2013
Today while I was sketching Jeanne came by to talk to me. Leaned right into my open car window, smiled at me and said, “Vous en allez à l’école?” (You’re going to school?) “Oui”, I said, puzzled. “Combien de jeunes vous enseignez?” (How many young people do you teach?) “Beaucoup!”, I responded. But the strange thing is that I have never met Jeanne before and there is no way she could have known I was a teacher. I had no schoolbag on the car seat, no ID card, and I’ve never met her before today. What do you think of that?
