"Impossible de repasser chez moi, je n'ai jamais pu retrouver la clé de mon appartement en faisant mes valises au Chili. Je crois me souvenir que je dispose d'un double dans le tiroir de mon bureau ; j'attendrai la soirée pour retrouver la poussière qui a dû envahir mon logement depuis mon départ."*
He's just gotten back from Chile after been sent home after suffering from altitude sickness. I mean, not being able to find his key to his London apartment is pretty funny, but aren't there insurance issues with just leaving your home vacant without anyone checking on it for months??
I'm dropping my other books for the moment in order to go on a French kick in preparation for my exam on Monday. Really I should be writing this is French too but very few people who follow me can read it so I'm cheating. It's an oral exam, so I feel it's more important to feel comfortable in it than studying per se and feeling comfortable means naturally thinking in it. Watching French TV and reading in French helps with that.
"Impossible to go by my place first, I was never able to find the key to my apartment while packing in Chile. I think I remember that I have a spare in my office desk drawer; I'll wait till evening to discover the dust that has invaded my home since my departure."
