Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Tomboys are not princesses
One of the Ticklers is a true tomboy, maybe the perfect tomboy, certainly the most tomboy girl I have ever met. I had another proof of that yesterday, when we were sitting with them at Wimpy. After lunch, the waitress came to clear the table and said to the Tickler: "Let me take your plate princess." The Tickler looked at her with very angry eyes, as if she had been really insulted. After the waitress had left, the Tickler whispered: "If she ever calls me princess again, I'll stab her in the eye with a sharp knife!" She was then told off by her mother, but we couldn't help but laugh. It was a mean thing to say to someone who was showing kindness, nevertheless it qualifies as a great unknown line.
