    A man one’s was presented a magistrate which ad a considerable library “What you make?” beg him the magistrate. “I do some books” was answered. “But any of your books I did not seen its — I believe it so, was answered the author I mak nothing for Paris. From a of my works is imprinted, I send the edition for America; I don’t compose what to colonies.”



    (or as the case may be.)

      Of course, any phrase book must needs offer advice about conversing with a hairdresser, and Pedro does not sell us short:

      Comb-me quickly; don’t put me so much pomatum. What news tell me? All hairs dresser are newsmonger.

        Naturally there is a section on "Familiar phrases":

          "The thunderbolt is falling down"

          "Will you a bon?"

          "He has spit in my coat"

            Some of said phrases are perhaps less suitable for polite company...

            Comment


              "These apricots and these peaches make me and to come water in mouth"

              "I am pinking me with a pin"

              "He do the devil at four"

                Still, the Portuguese tourist who found Pedro's book failing them in their English excursion could at least have recourse to that well-known phrase "Do not might one’s understand to speak?" (well-known since post #18863, anyway)

                  I wish I'd thought of Pedro's book during our "process retrospective" meeting this afternoon, so I could have impressed my colleagues with "A bad arrangement is better than a process."

                  It's stuff like that which really helps to establish one's reputation in this game

                    Unfortunately it doesn't necessarily establish the reputation one would wish... ah well, as Pedro says, "I jest of them; my vessel is armed in man of war, i have a vigilant and courageous equipage, and the ammunitions don't want me its."
