My loser country

I was walking through the University where, as usual, a great many large scale construction projects were going on. It was lunchtime, more or less, and all the construction workers were out on the sidewalks, wearing their yellow vests and hardhats, some carrying along their soft cooler lunch bags. I saw a group of them walking together towards Oak street and, seeing all those yellow vests on the move at once, something stirred in me.

"Viva La France!" I cried out to them, raising my fist defiantly in the air.

They barely lifted their eyes to me, expressionless.

Yeah, we're going down without a fight. 

Either that or they had no idea what I was referring to.

Probably both.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
