American Invasion

Today at school was a big day.  The American exchange students arrived.  And man, was it a big deal.  I am excited to meet them for obvious reasons, but the whole school was in a tizzy.  I got to the staff room and people were practicing their American accents.  And when they actually arrived at the school in their bus it was, as Will so amazingly put it, like an invasion.  The combination of all of their wheelie suitcases traversing the cobblestone sounded like an airplane landing in the courtyard.  The best was when I was teaching a class, they heard the suitcases hit the pavement and one of the guys screamed “THEY’RE HERE!” All of a sudden, chaos broke out.  The entire class was running to the window, diving under tables, throwing open the curtains, just in time to judge every American walking by. I didn’t get everything but I did catch “They are so tall!” “He’s got a big head!” Welcome to France.
