Roses are red...

This Sunday is Mother's Day in France. The company provided everybody with a rose for the employees to give to their mothers. Only this time with a difference. The person in charge of late shift decided that my cow-orker and myself, being the only two blokes left in the building, could hand roses to the girls... and give them a kiss on each cheek as well.

Just think, in lesser countries, I could scream about sexual harrassment, loss of dignity, trauma... Hehe... But the flip side, I guess, is "oh my God, we have to kiss him!".

Of course, I decided to play along with it, so I grabbed a big sticky label and wrote on it "Je suis un célibataire!" and a smiley heart. That got a big giggle from everybody.

I should point out, it was the cheek-kissing thing that French people do. This was no full-on snog, thankfully...

Shame ... 
How many girls were there, incidentally?

Um... About twelve. 
To give the infamous quote: girls are like domain names - all the good ones are taken.
