*Wanting to ask a question in a restaurant, read my little French phrasebook to figure out how to say it in French, forcing myself to ask in French*
*Panic, too shy to try speaking French, trying so hard to force myself at least ask in French "Parlez-vous anglais?" (Do you speak English?)*
*Rehearsed with myself many times*
Me, "hum.... hum.... hum......"
Waitress, "(Said something in French, probably asking me "how may I help you?")"
Me, "hum....... sigh... Do you speak English?"
Waitress, "Yes a little bit"
Conversation continued in English.
This happened at least 10 times in the past two days. Fail.
