So today in class we did our grammar thing in the morning. We actually had a test. Oh yeah, another test. Oh - by the way I passed the verb test on Monday! Not by much, but I passed! The funny (or sad) thing was that the girl next to me saw my score and said; "Oh man, even you did better than me."
HA! HA! HA!
That's right folks, I was NOT the lowest score in the class!! I know this should not matter to me, but it gave me a little boost for the rest of the class. I think I should have been at least a little insulted by the comment, but I wasn't even the slightest bit annoyed. Hell, I wanted to take her out for beers for letting me know. Ok, back to today...
So we had this test that I thought was going to be on vocabulary and time like depuis, dans, en, il y a and things. In English it's kind of like since, during, ago and things like that. Well it was, but it was also on three other things that I had no clue about. The vocabulary was all fill in the blank with no choices. Seriously, give me something to work with here. I couldn't remember how the heck to say "fireworks" in French or "tablet" of aspirin. The funniest thing was we were supposed to write a recipie in French. I must have missed a class because I don't remember ever doing this. I made it more like directions and in English it went like this:
To make a goat cheese salad you need salad (I couldn't remember the word for lettuce), goat cheese and vinaigrette. You put salad on plate then put goat cheese on salad. With you put vinaigrette on salad and voila, there is goat cheese salad.
I know many of you have just now taken note of this amazing recipie. Let all your friends know that you have Susan to thank for this meal. Oh...I also titled it "Hot Goat Cheese Salad" and then couldn't think of the verb "to warm" so alas my cheese was cold. I guess I could have said "make hot" but I didn't.
After the test the teacher went on about something and said we were going to have the second part of the day in the language lab. When she let us out for break I packed my bag for the lab and was ready to go. I told the girl next to me "I don't even know where the building is that the lab is in, I'm just going to follow you." She looks at me and says "What? What do you mean?" I told her that the teacher said we were to meet in the lab in the other building. She then starts laughing and says; "Oh no Susan! We are on break now and we come back to this room after coffee. When we come back we will go to the next room, that is all."
I totaly was all packed up and ready to move. But hey, I did get one point higher than someone on the verb test. I will always have that memory to cherish.
