Artistic Surprise

Nic had her art lesson at college today. She was pleased that her usual teacher was back after he had been away for the last two weeks.

They started a new assignment today - artwork incorporating a slogan. A slogan in English rather than French.

Nic was in her element. Whilst eagerly choosing a slogan to use herself, she also dealt with the queue of students asking her to translate their ones - they wrote theirs in French first.

The teacher noticed this, and asked why everyone was pestering Nic. And they all laughed and said 'Because she is English of course!'

The teacher exclaimed 'What? Since when?!'

Turns out he had just spent two weeks on a language course in order to improve his English sufficiently to deal with this assignment!

Ah, bless.

I love it! What a shock he must have got. Well done Nic for being bi-lingual to that degree x

PS Great that you are back to blogging, though it was also great to see you in UK on Saturday and catch up with some of your news xx
