IN TEN MINUTES, I will arrive back at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport. I was quite anxious to depart from this flight as the stewardess made eye contact with me and smiled. I knew that we weren’t that far away from the airport, as I glanced out the window starring out at the endless French farms, and those yellow shaped flowers called mimosa caught my attention: a blanket of tapestry that blossomed that cultural botanical love. I knew it was a sign that spring was in the air, as the airplane started to make its descent.
Amelie, the stewardess made her way to my seat right after the plane’s wheels touched the tarmac, and before the plane taxied to the gate. I was the first one out of my seat ready to exit this flight.
“KC, please follow me,” she said in a soft voice.
Shortly after, she directed me to the customs line that stretched from here to Timbuktu and another attractive French woman came up to me and smiled.
“Amelie, I’ll take it from here.”
“Oui,” she smiled. “Good to see you again KC.”
I smiled at her…
Guys, I guess there’s no better time to test my French.
“Bonjour, Mademoiselle.” and she tilted her head to the left and stared. “Où est la sortie s’il vous plait ?”
“Bonjour Monsieur,” she laughed. “Welcome back to Paris KC and you have to work on that accent.”
“And, stop mumbling KC!”
