On the corner of rue des Bernardins in Saint Germain, Paris, there’s a wonderful little boutique full of tee shirts bearing witty French slogans. Suddenly, saying “j’aime pas le matin” (I don’t like mornings) looks chic. Unfortunately, when Monsieur and I spotted this retail gem (named Latitude Sud), it was well past the owner’s bedtime, so we couldn’t stop ‘n’ shop, but we could add it to the must-do list for the future.
I’m determined to buy the tee that says “Je suis comme je suis” (I am how I am), simply because it’s one of Monsieur’s favourite phrases. In context: “I don’t like garlic. Je suis comme je suis.” It’s sort of like saying “I’m an old dog and you ain’t teachin’ me no new tricks.”
