Last year.... and every year since I met Mari, it has been a blessing. Mari has invited me to speak at her design store in Austin. Here are some photos from our last visit:
At Dinner with the Joker. French Husband can be a clown add that to goofy and stir in his joking about something silly such as a Frenchman acting out different accents as the French hear them.
Instant comedy without much to drink.
Our friends Mari and Shelby egged French Husband on with, "Let's hear a German accent, an English accent, a Chinese accent," and then they went into over drive with laughter as French Husband acted each "foreign accent" in French for them.
Some people have to drink, or take drugs, or been paid to have this much fun. Mari and Shelby just had to sit and ask for a different accent.
I didn't know who was having more fun the ones laughing (Mari and Shelby) or the one being laughed at (French Husband).
In a restaurant they laughed full throttle.
The more they laughed the more French Husband accelerated.
As French Husband joked,
they laughed, which prompted them to say english expressions, and French Husband tried to understand the meaning:
'Have a cow!"
"Who has a cow? What do you mean to have a cow?""
He never caught on.
I guess he has to come visit Mari in Austin.
More to come as I venture to Texas... and I thought Sacramento valley was hot....
