When asked what's typical french I'm usually answering ça dépend.
Saying "ça va" at least 37 times every single day is french. My sister is very french. Although I find her appearance somehow not decidedly french enough, dèsolé. She could pass as maltese or croatian. C'est normal. Let's face it: Most french people aren't up with Charles de Gaulle when it comes to looking unmistakeably french. He certainly looked the part. Helas, they're not looking all the same, cettes Françaises. #catherinedeneuve doesn't resemble de Gaulle, does she?
#labresse serves one cliché très bien. Eating frogs is really big there. I eat frogs since 1974. They really taste like chicken.
That may sound boring. Like geometry. Hey, geometry is french as fuck! You had to draw triangles in school, because Gaspard Monge got so bored with eating frogs, not looking like de Gaulle and saying ça va all the time en province française he invented descriptive geometry.
#sonetlumiere shows are typical french. By chance we could watch a great one at #eglisedebrou in #bourgenbresse while having café et marc after dinner. The church's roof-tiling isn't french it's bourguignon. You find it in Beaune (#gaspardmonge was born there) and Bruges (Belgium), but not in Paris. This is trop compliqué? I've just started. Where do you think gothic architecture originates from? Las Vegas, Mumbai, Grimsby, Lincolnshire? Uber-foodie #brillatsavarin came from Bresse. Le fromage named after him has to have min. 72% #matieregrasse. Apropos: The metric system is very french aussi. Like saying "c'est normal". Which contrary to #çava has a meaning. A meter is a norm, but there's no norm for deviant behaviour. Ma soeur says "c'est mon frere, c'est normal" when somebody in France is wondering why I can get terribly upset about #mayotte being departement Nr. 101.
Tant pis, #vivelafrance🇫🇷 et #nixfürungut , Nicole Christine!
