The extent of my knowledge of French is as follows:
"Bonjour," I say.
"Bonjour," they reply. "Comment t'allez-vous?"
"Shit," I say. "I don't know what comes next."
Likewise, my knowledge of a different foreign language:
"I love you," I say.
"I love you too," they reply.
"Shit," I say. "What comes next?"
that was amazing! its so short but so descriptive at the same time, packed full of emotions and yet so simple, I LOVE IT!!!
i like the way this is set up.
I am same way. I took French for three years just to end up only knowing two phrases and a handful of words. And as for the "I love you" part. Yeah thats it. I personally think that the phrase is meaningless as it is used pointlessly whenever there is nothing else to say or just to say something.
"I love you" seems to me to be the end of a line of dialogue, you know? There's nowhere to go from there. It's like when you get a text that just says "OK." While the "OK" from the second party might confirm what the first has stated, it is the end of the conversation, an more or less pointless to say.
