This morning, at 11am, I got a text from Copain:
Copain: You awake? What time did you go to bed? Try to get us some fruit please. You know how I love them :-)
Thankfully for him, I was awake. I responded, totally ignoring his request for fruit from the marché, just to see how long it would take for him to bring it up again:
FCC: Hey babe. How was the cheese club? (he had gone to a club in London called Club de Fromage...seriously)
Copain: It was so much fun there. Really liked the club. Only 80's and 90's music.
FCC: Oh cool:-) did you dance? (For the record, Copain has a "rhythm deficiency" - it's a very serious disorder.)
Copain: Haha A lot!
FCC: Hmmm, are you sure?
Copain: You have no idea. At the end, I was one with the music. Marché? (see how he just casually tosses the marché back into the text?? ps - I'm pretty sure that "one with the music" means "too many pints")
FCC: Yes yes, I'm going to go AFTER my coffee. (this is a non-negotiable)
Copain: Cool!!! (probably shocked that I was actually planning on getting off the couch)
FCC: Yes yes, I know, freak of French nature. (It had to be said)
By the time I finally got my bootay off the couch, into clothes that did not resemble pajamas and out the door, it was already 12:30 (a new record!). I hurried to the Marché d'Aligre just in time for the final mad scramble - the time when tout est à 1 Euro! (everything is just 1 Euro!).
Check out my loot:
Pamplemousse - 5 for 1 Euro!
Clementines, blette, navets, fenouil, carottes!
1 kilo of onions and 1 kilo of potatoes - all for 1 Euro!
Zucchini! Figs! Bananas!
2 kilos of apples for 2 Euros!
All of this for under 15 Euros OMG Copain would be so proud. Copain? Are you seeing this? I would like to state publicly, right here and now, that none of this will be used for Stella.
