j'adore minette

J'adore minette

Opps is that dirty? My know it all sister had to tell me in the 6th grade the dirty meaning of my name in French. I took French classes through the 11th grade. I had three different French teachers over that time period and always imagined they snickered when they saw my name on the attendance list for the first time. Today on MySpace I found a French music video using my name in it's worst context.

Check it.

In my 8th grade French book there was a little cartoon picture of a kitten and its name was Minette that made me feel a little better about it all. My French teacher let me be the cat in the activity that went along with the picture (he was a rad dude).

College has only taught me that my name also has an unsavory meaning in Bulgarian. When my roomate told her Bulgarian boyfriend's mother my name she was a little shocked.
I'd say "I love minette" in Bulgarian only I don't know any Bulgarian. Well one word apparently.

So what do we think?
Heres the idea. Mens boxers that say "J'adore minette" and another pair that say I love minette in bulgarian whatever that would be. Perfect gift for my boyfriend right? Haha. No. But maybe marketable. Kind of a joke signiture collection piece. We're willing to wear any dirty thing Juciy Couture comes up with.

By the way, yeah that picture is totaly unrelated. Give me a break its my first post I'm not organized quite yet.
