Aujourd’hui un compliment
March 1, 2012 § Leave a comment
Talking to random folk out and about in Brussels has become second-nature since bringing babe into the world. Perhaps people have been bursting for an excuse to converse with me over the years but were just waiting for this catch-all entry point of small child. Dogs also do the trick. So graciously receiving compliments from strangers is now second nature. Today from heavily pregnant lady with toddler in tow: “il est magnifique, il faut en faire plus.” Naturally I think my son is the most wonderful thing since sliced-bread, but I do wonder how long this flow of compliments is going to last.
