The Author is off to Paris for the weekend.

*The clever French mispronunciation invented by E.F. Benson’s Lucia in Mapp and Lucia (recommended reading):

‘”It was that summer when you invented saying “Au reservoir” instead of “Au revoir”. We all said it for about a week and then got tired of it. Miss Mapp came here just about then, because she picked it up at my garden-party…Yes: it was the au reservoir year, because she said au reservoir to everyone as they left, and told me she would take it back to Tilling.”
