5 years ago, I went to the cinema with a very beautiful young girl. We saw The Dancer Upstairs and then went to a bar to have a little chat. After a few glasses of wine, I somehow managed to convince her to come to my place for a last drink.

Things, I thought, were looking good.

My place: dim lights, music, bottle of wine.
We talked and we laughed. We asked questions and got answers. We felt good.

But then she left.
Without a kiss.

And that’s why our anniversary is only tomorrow.

Thanks for coming by and also for leaving the very first comment on my blog. I'm glad I found yours. But... do I have to write my comment in two different languages too ?

Parce que je risque de m'emmêler les pinceaux. And you don't want to do that. Except if your name is Picasso.

Annie: thank you, you too.
TLM: it's quite a name you've got going there... Oui une réponse dans les deux langues s'impose, je crois.
