changing lives since 2003

french kiss

i just woke up from a nap.

in it, i was reading the closing words of an autobiography written by my cousin amy. she had switched to french and was illustrating an old saying from the 40's with b&w photos... 2 of a man and 2 of a woman. the woman was wearing a bathing suit. in the first, she was resting her derriere on a pier post and her torso was twisted to her left and away from the camera as she brought her right hand up to her mouth. in the second, she had thrown her hand back out towards the camera to release the kiss.

the words had something to do with keeping something in your pocket and not letting it go. however, the french translation included the words vin and chevre. i'm astounded to learn these really are words in french. i should've at least been able to guess vin.
