Would like to know how much Cajun you speak, interests me. Do you understand any spoken French?
Not much. I took French in elementary school. We mostly learned basic. And talked about Monique. I wonder what Monique is up to.

My mom is 14 karat coona$$. I’m just a 7 karat as my dad is from Mississippi. My maternal grandmother spoke French all the time. She knew English also. I know how to introduce myself and ask how you’re doing. I have a big book on Cajun French. I need to sit down with it and learn it. But Cajun French is dying out. Not many know it. Better swerved to learn classical French.

I remember asking my maw maw how to say certain words in French. I asked her one time how to say Hamburger in French. She responded. “Mais Ham’burg!!!” Like I was dumb. Mais is pronounced May. Haha.

To a child still trying to grasp the English language she confused the heck out of me. She would say “in” when it was proper to say “on”. One Thanksgiving she told me to put a bowl of something in the table. I thought in the table. How the heck and I going to go that? Slide open the table like we were adding another leaf to it. Haha. Good times. Good times. My first wife thought I knew French because I could understand her. In reality it was more of a familiarity with what she would ask about and knowing some key words. I’m going to dig out that book and brush up on my French. One burnt into my memory is

“Merci beaucoup, s'il te plait”

or the redneck version
