Embarrassing moment number three from my first trip to Paris….
That night, I went outside to smoke a cigarette. As I was standing out front, a group of people walked past. They were dressed nicely, as if they were coming from dinner.
Being the idiot that I am, I decided to call out: “Bonjour!”
The man grinned and said (very quietly and calmly): “Bonsoir.”
NOTE TO SELF: It’s “bonsoir” at night, not “bonjour.” 😐
