Monique wrote from France about a cool "emoticon" she uses when corresponding with her friends. Here’s her email:
In French, "à demain" (see you tomorrow) sounds like "à 2 mains" (with two hands). That’s why when someone tells you "à demain" you may answer "à deux pieds" (with two feet) as a joke. This all reminds me of a former student of mine who would always have a playful smile when leaving in the evening as he was going to tell me "Maîtresse, à deux pieds!" (Teacher, with two feet!).
Thanks for sharing Monique!
