About 20 minutes after she left for school this morning I got a text from my teenager.
"Maman, what is that word that began with 'P' that was about languages and slang from the West Indies or something?"
"Pronounced pa twa."
"Thank you lovely dictionary mummy :-P"
"It is a noun. Pl is patois, pronounced pa twaz."
"*facepalm* Now I know where I get it from!"
"You're welcome, now go and learn something."
