Bien coquins nos écrivains  
LETTRE DE GEORGE SAND À ALFRED DE MUSSET !
A lire du début à la fin pour comprendre l’humour de cette lettre!

Je suis très émue de vous dire que j’ai
bien compris l’autre soir que vous aviez
toujours une envie folle de me faire
danser. Je garde le souvenir de votre
baiser et je voudrais bien que ce soit
là une preuve que je puisse être aimé
par vous. Je suis prête à montrer mon
affection toute désintéressée et sans cal-
cul, et si vous voulez me voir aussi
vous dévoiler sans artifice mon âme
toute nue, venez me faire une visite.
Nous causerons en amis, franchement.
Je vous prouverai que je suis la femme
sincère, capable de vous offrir l’affection
la plus profonde comme la plus étroite
en amitié, en un mot la meilleure preuve
que vous puissiez rêver, puisque votre
âme est libre. Pensez que la solitude où j’ha-
bite est bien longue, bien dure et souvent
difficile. Ainsi, en y songeant j’ai l’âme
grosse. Accourez donc vite et venez me la
faire oublier par l’amour où je veux me
mettre.

MUSSET S’EMPRESSA DE REPONDRE :

Quand je mets vos pieds un éternel hommage,
Voulez-vous qu’un instant je change de visage ?
Vous avez capturé les sentiments d’un coeur
Que pour vous adorer forma le Créateur.
Je vous écris, amour, et ma plume en lire
Couche sur le papier ce que je n’ose dire.
Avec soin de mes vers lisez les premiers mots :
Vous saurez quel remède apporter mes maux.

*******************************************

Romantique n’est-ce pas ?
Maintenant relisez la lettre de Sand une ligne sur 2…
Et les premiers mots de chaque ligne de celle de Musset.
Tout ceci est authentique, comme quoi ils se marraient bien au XIXe siecle!

Irelands Call

Tomorrow 6 nations rugbycompetition starts again, starts off with Ireland-France, and one of the things I always love to hear and sing out loud is « Irelands Call » :

Come the day and come the hour
Come the power and the glory
We have come to answer
Our Country’s call
From the four proud provinces of Ireland

Chorus

Ireland, Ireland,
Together standing tall
Shoulder to shoulder
We’ll answer Ireland’s call

2

From the mighty Glens of Antrim
From the rugged hills of Galway
From the walls of Limerick
And Dublin Bay
From the four proud provinces of Ireland
(Chorus)

3

Hearts of steel
And heads unbowing
Vowing never to be broken
We will fight, until
We can fight no more
For the four proud provinces of Ireland
Sung by the Irish rugbyteam it brings out a lot of emotions but here is another version with the Celtic Thunder :

One day, a man came home and was greeted by his wife dressed in a very Sexy nightie. 
‘Tie me up,’ she purred, ‘and you can do anything you want.’  
So he tied her up and went golfing.

 

A woman came home, screeching her car into the driveway, and ran into the house. 
She slammed the door and shouted at the top of her lungs, ‘Honey, pack your bags. I won the lottery!’ 
The husband said, ‘Oh my God! What should I pack, beach stuff or mountain stuff?’ 

‘Doesn’t matter,’ she said. ‘Just get out.’ 

 

Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right, and the other is a husband.

 

A Polish immigrant went to the DMV to apply for a driver’s license. 
First, of course, he had to take an eye sight test. 
The optician showed him a card with the letters   
  
 
‘C Z W I X N O S T A C Z.’  
‘Can you read this?’ the optician asked. 
‘Read it?’ the Polish guy replied, ‘I know the guy.’

 

Mother Superior called all the nuns together and said to them, ‘I must tell you all something. We have a case of gonorrhea in the convent.’  
‘Thank God,’ said an elderly nun at the back. ‘I’m so tired of chardonay.’

 

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. 
Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. 
‘Careful,’ he said, ‘CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You’re cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my gosh! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They’re going to STICK! Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you’re cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Ha ve you LOST your mind? Don’t forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the! salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!’ 
The wife stared at him. 
‘What in the world is wrong with you? You think I don’t know how to fry a couple of eggs?’ 
The husband calmly replied, ‘I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I’m driving.’
