5 phrases I wished I'd learned.......

in French class. No matter how well I can tear apart a novel by Zola, there are times when my French vocab fails me. These have been a few of the most recent times.......

To the hairdresser: Can you cut it so that I'll look like Cameron Diaz?

To my vet: My dog's face has swollen up to the size of a bowling ball.

To another mother: My daughter lost her two front teeth when she rode her bike off a 3ft drop.

To the water company: My courtyard seems to be seeping raw sewage.

To the builder: Are you sure the floor can hold a cast iron bath full of water and with me in it?
