So we're having dinner with the neighbors, who have varying amounts of english. We're discussing what traditional Christmas dinners might consist of, both in the States and in France, and I mention goose. However, I use the wrong word and say instead "canard", or "duck" So we're trying to explain goose, and Anne (the wife, whose english is the best in the house, and certainly better than my french) is trying to translate goose. What she comes up with is "wife of the duck". Love it.
