Today I'm in Nice, France. I'm here for 3 days for a conference. I hope my hibernating French kicks in soon so I don't embarrass myself any more. Yesterday while I was in transit through Charles De Gaulle Airport through to Nice I kept trying to think in French. I wasn't too successful in my hazy jet-lagged state.
Landing in Nice, exhausted and only thinking about how nice a warm bath would be, I got halfway up the gangway when I realized I'd left my coat in the overhead bin. I turned around went back to the plane and a nice Air France representative looked at me, asked if she could help (in French) and I said without even thinking "J'ai oublier mon coat."
Ok, so it wasn't perfect.
