Because women have offered to leave their happy marriages for him.
Because he’s enjoying it immensely.
And because I aim to please, folks.
1. He learns English expressions!
See this phone conversation.
2. He makes up English expressions that don't exist!
The first time I met Guigui, over kirs at Olivier’s apartment, the conversation went immediately to film, naturally. Gui kept telling me a certain film was “really beeg sheet” in France.
Really big shit. I didn’t even question it. He was trying to say it was good. The Shit. Right? But when he used it in reference to THE REMAKE OF GODZILLA, I become quickly aware that “really beeg sheet” was in fact meant to signify, um, really big shit.
3. He loves Texans!
When I told Gui my friend Noelle would be visiting from Texas, he said, in one breath, “She’s from Texas? YEEHAW! Will she be wearing cowboy boots? I saw this documentary once with these sheriffs, from Texas...”
4. He has refined taste in actors!
Guigui and I were talking about dubbed films and how they annoy us. He said, “Yes, I prefer watching films in the original English with French subtitles, unless it’s a Bruce Willis film, because il apporte quelque chose de spéciale.” That’s to say, the voiceover actor BRINGS SOMETHING SPECIAL to the character with his voice.
5. He comments on weblogs!
If you haven’t seen his many comments on the post that's all about him. GO READ THEM. If not for his FALSE MODESTY as women offer to give it all up to be with him, then simply for the phrase, “I have stoped this stupid game; it’s too much expansive.”
I will be saying this to my propriétaire when she asks why I haven’t paid my rent yet.
I have stoped this stupid game; it’s too much expansive.
