I have been showing my proficiency in French to my colleagues. During the commute to work, I construct a sentence. Then, I arrive at work and tell them the sentence. They are amused by this exercise. One of them have decided to teach me a phrase a day. What does he teach me yesterday? Les grand espirits se recontrent. They are two ways to interpret this sentence. Great minds meet. Great minds think alike.
What cracked me up was not the phrase but how he taught me this phrase. Here is the what transpired between us.
He: I have a new phrase for you. "Les grand espirits se recontrent".
He: This is what you use in WC. *In case you are wondering, WC stands for toilets.*
He: You go to WC. You meet your friend there. Then you say. "Les grand espirits se recontrent". Great minds think alike.
