Oh, I don’t know where to start. This week and the last have been an absolute blur. This is what I remember…
I guess it had something to do with…COVFEFE…?
Last week, all was well. I was working in Berlin, hanging with my friends, eating fabulous avocado toast at Cafe Oliv while wearing my new favorite ‘I LOVE YES’ button, and then. It happened. I woke up to the news of THE TWEET . I can’t say that I was surprised, as this Presidency seems to be the shitstorm that keeps on shitting. However, It did spark a lot of discussion on new words, spelling, and English communication – which I love love love!
And then we had the withdrawal from Paris. Merde. And before you knew it, we had the English dis/ speech by Macron . Ooh la lah! I give him so much credit for doing this, and for doing it in English. His vocabulary is actually at a higher level than 45’s.
Then James and the Giant Impeach stopped by. Fun fact: He’s 6 foot 8. Which is HUGE for an American, and just a tiny bit on the tall side for a Dutch guy. 😉
So, the next time someone asks me to help them with their British accent, I will ask them which one they mean, as I don’t know where to start anymore. But the handy picture below might help you understand the British a bit better.
Sending you clarity and optimism (and a huge slice of that avocado toast – it’s really the best ever!).
