so. i’ve decided to create my first weekly theme.
i’m calling it French Expression Friday. because alliteration.
i even made a little logo thingy to make it official:
to kick things off, here’s an awesome word, and a pretty useful expression for some of us:
i love this word gueule. my french teacher in college taught us that the way to tell someone to shut up, a bit harshly, is; ‘ta gueule’. (as apposed, i guess, to the more regular ways of saying shut up, like ‘tais-toi’ and ‘ferme-la’.)
he (and subsequently, we) would say it in a low, growly voice, feigning disgust. ta gueullle.
what a cool teacher he was.
i wonder if the word ‘gueule’ is ever used in a pleasant or complimentary way? poor animals :)~
