A demain ("See you tomorrow" in French)

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!).

So if you see @hands moc in French, it reads as "à demain" (see you tomorrow). 

Thanks for sharing Monique!
