Back to Life

Well, vacation over and back to real life.
We loaded up on the train...take my advice...always take the early train while traveling in France. Why you ask. Odor. The aroma in the cars is not fresh in the afternoons. I feel comfortable saying this, because I stink too. Yes, I said it.
We have all heard it. The stinky French. Well it is not their fault. The deodorant, yet expensive, does not work. I use it everyday and everyday I think to myself..."is that me?". Yes, it is.
So, here is my first open apology to the French.
Thankfully, the thrifty husband that I have told me of this expensive deodorant, so I stocked up at Costco before we left. Our crate arrives tomorrow. Goodbye stink.

Life on a train with Jaylee:
There were two very nice woman that rode facing us back to Paris. Jaylee made fast friends. While we were chatting...in English. We discussed learning French. I mention that I start my tutor once we return to Paris...
J: "My dad is a tutor"
Lady: "He is?"
J: "Yes"
Me: "Jaylee, he is not."
J: "Yes he is. He toots and farts all the time. Remember this morning when he tooted and wiggled his bottom."
UGH......I feel myself sweating more.
