  • A friendly dog-walker out beside a cathedral. He helped us with French pronunciation and laughed at how hard it is to get your tongue to do what you want it to.

    He told us he was an 'animateur'. I mistakenly asked him if he had any films that we could watch somehow, forgetting that in French, the word means 'group leader' or 'organizer'. He was a little taken aback. But then we laughed again.

    After I met him my favourite colour became purple.
