Pardon My French. . .
Of course I know people who speak French with many levels of fluency. Admittedly, I am not one of them. In fact with the exception of some
well-known (maybe even cliche) terms, I "got nothing" but a bad Maurice Chevalier impersonation that I haven't attempted to use in decades.
As I have previously shared, I have experienced some troubling reactions when trying to effectively communicate with others at times. Or so it seems judging from reactions that seem to be akin to a blank stare. Maybe I should place an emoji or use a special font to indicate sarcasm. I know it can be subtle. I am very much aware that there are those who may not find it to be sarcastic, satirical or even close to being humorous. But it’s a part of who I am and aren’t we each made up of many different parts? Pieces of a bigger picture even if some of the pieces of the puzzle don't always fit exactly as intended.
Nuance is a part of communication but it isn’t always clear - especially in writing. Some “get it” but there are others “who don’t” for any number of reasons.
So for the countless of those who could possibly identify as “them” - pardon my French as I continue my attempt to communicate effectively. Hmm do you think a more appropriate post title might have been Pondering Pardon??? Yes, I digress. . .
