Episódio de hoje: A professora de francês que fazia chover
Tricia has fully recovered from her plastic surgery. She is helping one of the kids with his homework. I forgot the name of the kids, I mean, it’s been ages since the last time I mentioned them so, I’m going to call him kid, if you don’t mind.
Tricia: So my precious kid, let me help you out with your French homework.
Kid: Thanks, mommy.
Tricia: So, kid what’s your French teacher like?
Kid: She’s nice and she knows how to make rain.
Tricia: What, dear? What do you mean?
Kid: Madame Claire makes rain every time she speaks. It’s really funny.
Tricia: Sweet, I still don’t understand. Could you be more specific?
Kid: I’ll give you an example. Today I had a doubt about the verb parler (to speak) in the past simple (passé composé) and when I asked her, she came to me and started making rain. And suddenly, it was raining like cats and dogs, mommy.
Tricia: Lord!!!!!! I got it! When your teacher speaks droplets of saliva comes out of her mouth!!
Tricia: Of course she does that unintentionally.
Kid: I think she doesn’t know that she spits while talking.
Tricia: Oh, dear, it’s excruciatingly embarrassing, isn’t it?
Kid: Mommy, can I ask a question?
Kid: Why do you choose difficult words when you speak?
Tricia: You mean the adverb excruciatingly.
Kid: Yes, what does it mean?
Tricia: It comes from the adjective excruciating, and it means extremely, for example, excruciatingly funny, excruciatingly humiliating….

Kid: Can I ask another question?
Tricia: Bien sur mon petit chou. (Of course my sweetheart).
Kid: When will “the real you” come back?
Tricia: Dear, I didn’t understand. I’m right here in front of you.
Kid: Mommy, the funny lines on your face. Where did they go?
Tricia starts laughing.
Tricia: Dear, I have to tell you that those lines aren’t going to come back. They are dead.
Why, do you miss them?
Kid: No, I find it rather strange when I look at you and don’t see them. And when I talk with dad he still has those lines. Why?
Tricia: Because, dad hasn’t done any plastic surgery yet, perhaps, in the foreseeable future. By the way, we can those lines wrinkles.
Kid: I don’t want dad’s wrinkles change.
Kid: Because if the wrinkles vanish, we can’t play with him anymore.
Tricia: what do you play with him?
Kid: Can you keep a secret?
Tricia: Of course.
Kid: He doesn’t know, mom. But when he comes here to play with us we call him Mumm-ra! And we are the thundercats!
Tricia gives another hearty laugh.
