Hair – The Musical & Other Stories……….
HAIR – THE MUSICAL
Okay, well, it’s not the musical, but I’m so happy, it should be. I may share a TOWEL with my husband cause we’re too cheap to add more stuff to our tiny apt,
but I don’t sacrifice when it comes to my hair. Went to Jacques Dessange, the fab Parisian Hair place which I actually used to FLY TO PARIS for, back in the 90’s – when I was an airline person – just for the weekend. Yeah, I’m such a brat. So, now, I’ve continued the tradition………..only I don’t have to fly anymore. I’m here!!
For 3 1/2 hours they spoke to me in French and I have NO IDEA what they said to me, honestly. I also spoke to them in French – and GOD KNOWS what it was that I really said –
but the good thing is – my hair came out okay. Don’t you think?
I LOVE THIS PLACE – I LOVE THIS PLACE – – I LOVE THIS PLACE
- for the very first time, I ordered fresh fish – watched him weigh it, clean it, and present it to me – can’t wait to cook it tonight. It was SOLE.
Me to the Fishmonger: – “I don’t know how to clean a fish, I want to learn by watching you” in very bad French. Fishmonger to me : Shakes his head with a smile
2. This is actually what happened:
I unwrapped it to cook it up in the sizzling buttered pan with fresh lemon for my husband tonight and I see that the head is still attached to body of fish, so I took out my favorite big knife and WHOPPED it right off . Not only that- but – well, I discovered , inside – it was still the INSIDES…..and I’m thinking, hmmmm, how do I do this? So, I started cooking it and it kind of took care of itself. Then I scraped the beautiful white pieces of flesh off – and it came out really good. This is what was left in the pan:
“If you come to the dock early in the morning”, the Tourist Bureau tells me, “then you can get fresh fish from the little fishing boats, but you have to be early.” “How early?” I ask…..” they’re in by 8am.” Okay, then, that ‘s what I’m gonna do. Going to the port in Cassis and place my order and hope they’ll clean it thoroughly this time, and I’ll watch and learn – then try to do it myself – – – eventually. NOTHING like fresh right from the SEA! 🙂
Those are my stories for today, and I’m sticking to ’em!!!!
Have a nice night!
Bon Nuit! 🙂
