Finalsyuck.

Well, finals week begins. I have grammar tomorrow, and I'm terrified! La grammaire, je ne l'aime pas :(. It is funny, though, when you go into a bakery and confuse the gender of whatever it is you want to buy.

"Je voudrais un eclair, s'il vous plait."
"Un eclair? Euhh, une eclaire?"

When I get this sort of response I only assume it means that there is something out there that is "un eclair" or "un galette" or "une beignet." I mean, if I say, no, I don't want une eclaire, but rather, un eclair, do they come out with something else? A small animal, perhaps? I guess I'll just have to try it sometime...

You must try it or you will always wonder!

Haha "un éclair" means "a lightning bolt" so you shouldn't ask for it in a bakery...

Mais pour te dire la vérité je me trompe aussi très souvent, c'est rare que je dise "une éclair", les accords en français sont difficiles, même pour les français...
