la pomme est rouge


"La pomme est rogue" (said with force, said with exclamation) is a bit of an inside joke between robbie and me. We began taking french lessons online, and we'd be sitting across the room from one another and would be prompted by the program to say this sentence aloud. The program was really keen on this line. So we'd be saying it all the time -- hearing the other say it from the closet, in the shower...and gradually, it just became a (fairly useless) sentence we were saying constantly, shouting to each other from across the apartment. 

By now, we say it so much, it's taken on a life of its own, and the tone is always shifting -- like, "la pomme est rouge" is occasionally an expletive, sometimes a shrug, sometimes a mild acceptance of life, sometimes an exclamation...

I think we'll get it printed.

  2. I love this! Especially getting it printed, if it means so much between you two. Love the idea.
