Lost in Translation

Here in France, my name is actually pronounced “show.”  So Nath and her brother Hubert (whom we stayed with in Paris) kinda love to make jokes about it.  “Kelly, you are a show!,” “Kelly’s show,” etc.  I guess at least it’s more fabulous than “Sale,” which literally means “dirty” in French.  That would make Tim a “DIRTY Tim.”  HAHAHA.  But then again…that would make me a “DIRTY SHOW”?

  1. I think that actually would make you Kelly ‘Show Dirty’, which is even worse cuz it sounds kinda pornographic … ; )

  2. Ha… good stuff. I’m so envious of you guys. I just booked my trip to Hong Kong for early October. But, you know… one week vs. on year… sigh

  3. Just wanted to say Happy Aniversary to you and Kelly.

    Hope you two are having a great time!!!
