Well, blogger, that was interesting! You deleted a post and about 30 comments. Nice.
Eeee! So excited for my first featured Frackin' Friday guest!
Take it away, TriGirl!
Hi, TexaGermaNadian devotees! I am super-excited that my very first guest post is on none other than Frackin' Friday! Woohoo!
Ok, down to business. I have a little French lesson for you today. While I'm not French Canadian myself, I grew up in a bilingual community and learned French as soon as I learned to talk. I was in French immersion schools and my parents and grandparents are also fluent in French. This is a word I have heard for as long as I can remember, and some of you may recognize it as it resembles its Spanish counterpart.
The word is:
(Pronounced: mehrd. Bonus points if you can use a hard French 'r', kinda like you're clearing your throat, but a rolled Spanish 'r' will work just as well.)
By the way, my 91 year-old grandmother *swears* (heh) that "Merde" does not constitute cursing...I have 13 school teachers who would beg to differ with her :)
Thanks so much to TexaGermaNadian for letting me hijack one of the best post topics online!!
Happy Frackin' Friday everyone! Hope your day is free of la merde!
See, wasn't that fun?!?! :) Thanks so much TriGirl (for showing me up....haha, just kidding. You can't help that your feature was sooo awesome!)
