Now my partner is from Martinique as some of you may or may not know, and her skin tone is not exactly what you could call white, I on the other hand make you reach for your shades.
There we were walking along enjoying a lovely day and dammit what do you know happens?
A troglodyte member of the National Front pops up from under a rock, how to ruin a perfectly lovely day.
She walks up to Marie-Louise and starts some small talk and then without even engaging her brain suddenly asks:
"Why are you here"
Marie-Louise unflustered by this breech of etiquette replies "I am here because France is the greatest nation on earth" smiles and then walks on leaving me grinning like a cat that has spied a mouse, so I say
"I'm an American why don't you ask me the same question?"
She blinks, so I continue
"Just to prove you are not racist, hmm?"
So she kindly asks me to state my reasons
"Oh to undermine the Republic and install the caliphate" I reply.
Blink, blink, a suck on a lemon look, scurry away and mutter
Local election season can be fun after all
Ah the sun came out a again, hmmm
Will there be cream?
