Dear readers,

 

Chers lecteurs,

 

Did you ever have to bring a present to someone you barely knew? I find it very difficult.

 

Avez-vous déjà dû apporter un cadeau à quelqu'un que vous connaissiez peu? Ce n'est pas ce qu'il y a de plus facile.

 

As a substitute, I get to meet lots of colleagues every year, but usually I only come and go, it never gets beyond "how are you?" and "don't you think this class is really awful?"

 

Then last year a colleague invited me to a dinner with some other colleagues. I  was very surprised, but I thought it was really nice of her.

 

L'an dernier, une collègue m'a invité à dîner. Je ne savais encore pas grand chose d'elle. Certes, un bouquet de fleurs aurait fait l'affaire, mais je trouve que cela ne transmettait pas le "merci" que je voulais qu'elle reçoive.

 

And then, panic attack. What was I going to bring her? I didn't know her that well. Of course, I coud have brought flowers, as is customary in France. But it didn't really felt like me, nor did it convey the "thank you" I wanted to say.

 

So I gathered what I knew about her so far: she was a biology teacher and she loved turquoise.

 

Du coup, j'ai réfléchi: je savais qu'elle était prof de SVT et qu'elle aimait le turquoise. Un peu mince? Et non! ça m'a donné une idée.

 

So here's the idea I had:

Then I added a little color:

After hesitating for a very long time on the paint colour, I picked that one because it was called "Bébé Baleine" (Baby Whale) and I remembered she loved the sea.

 

So if ever you have a gift to do to a biology teacher, this is a fun way to give flowers!

 

Si jamais vous avez un cadeau à faire à un prof de science, ce petit "triflor" a été très facile à faire.

Since then, that colleague has become a close friend and is even my "attic-sale" buddy every Sunday morning...
