Pardon my French

On teenage popularity, politics...and the land of pain au chocolat.

Me: If the Republicans win, I'll be so disappointed I might have to move to...

Friend: ...Canada.

Me: Or France.

Friend: The French hate us.

Me (pleading): Oh but we love them. 

Friend (matter-of-factly): It'd be like junior high again.

--The New Yorker, David Sipress

For the most ridiculously easy (and American?) version of pain au chocolat, go here. Or maybe just watch this video and dream of wearing a white suit while buying bread on the beach in France. Looks just like heaven, doesn't it?
