Today I was on the phone with a French friend. We laughed at her stories. Turns out that the third day they were almost without electricity and civilization because of a big storm which cut down trees and cut off wires. The first day – romance, then, as in any unsuccessful married life – routine and annoyance for all the inconvenience.
As all their neighbors were buzzing electric generators, so my friends decided to do it too. They invested such an embarrassingly greasy amount and happily returned home. Her husband did everything that was needed, filled everything where needed, turned on and… silence. It was not working.
Well, time to read the instruction – they always do it post factum. Of course, the trouble was clear – it missed engine oil! Although the seller made sure they had everything in place to illuminate our lives. Uh, those charming Frenchmen and their professional mistakes – they had to go again to store
Living in France, especially in the province, requires patience shield. Otherwise, love will quickly become hate. Almost like a couple: If you want to be happy, not right, learn not to see the negative and see the positive in your chosen partner.
I wish life with light to you – inner, artificial, generated by someone, doesn’t matter. It’s important that there would be light, especially in the hearts!
