I have been with 'A', since 1999. He was very 'French'. Soon though, he started to pick up American habits. Said 'Though' for the Homer Simpson D'oh, told people to "Bite Me" and bought a pair of "relaxed fit" jeans. Even bought a flannel shirt and for a while had a Chevy pickup truck.
I began to wonder where did I go wrong, one day I am married to Pierre DuBois and the next day to Billy Bob Smith. After over 10 years, I have decided to implement my plan for "Refrenchification". Operation no more baggie jeans was crafted. I began to notice that all of A's jeans were holey and causually he mentioned that he needed some new ones. When I went to the mall this weekend, I found a couple of pairs that were the right size and he actually didn't take them back (even if at first he thought that they were too tight). Success! Well maybe he won't get his accent quite back, but we are on the road;)
