The Little Things

The Little Things

VALENCIENNES, FranceI nervously entered the patisserie holding onto my 3 euros tightly.

The storekeeper was preoccupied with another customer; I breathed and rehearsed what I had to say in my mind. Would she understand me? Would my 3 weeks of French classes be enough?

Bonjour! Je voudrais une tartelette au citron s’il vous plaît.” 
 Hello! I would like a lemon tartelette please.

She smiles and the transaction goes smoothly. Relief. I have my tartelette.

It is always the little things.
