What? First post of the challenge and you’re already arguing my choice of words? Ok, ok, I’ll give it to you, “love” doesn’t start with an “A”. But “amour” does, and love is a French thing! I should know, French is my mother tongue.
Every language has its good and bad sides, and each one is worth being spoken. Every language has words to express love, but I doubt anyone can outbeat French when it comes to being romantic and expressing love…
I might be biased, it wouldn’t be my first time.
“Pardonne mes lèvres, elles trouvent du plaisir dans les endroits les plus inattendus…”
(litterally “Excuse my lips, they find pleasure in the most unexpected places…”)
The French version is much sexier, especially if you add a nice English accent like in the movie “A Good Year” from which the quote comes.
What do I know about love? Good question…
What is love? (Haddaway)
Love hurts… (Nazareth)
Love bites… (Def Leppard)
All you need is love (The Beatles)
Love is a paradox… Maybe the greatest there is. It hurts, but you just have to experience it at least one time in your life. I had the luck to live very different kinds of love…
I’ve had the first time, puppy love… The kind that makes you feel like it’s going to be forever just because you’re so young and innocent.
I’ve had the long distance love…. The kind that brings the creativity out of you, because you can spend so little time together.
I’ve had the going to the alter love… The kind that persuades you that you’ve met your match, unless you get dropped a few months before walking the aisle, like me!
I’ve had the comfortable kind of love… The kind that fits like good old slippers, that allows you to fart in your better half’s presence knowing he’ll just find it funny.
And I’ve had the burning, passionate intellectual love… The kind that relies only on words, or mostly. I must say that it is one of my favorite, because intelligence is soooo sexy. And because it breaks all barriers.
I was wrong to choose Amour as my first theme… It is way too wide. Beginner’s failure, I guess.
I’ll leave it to that today… But feel free to comment with your favorite love quotes, stories, or anecdotes 🙂
I’ll do better tomorrow…. Maybe?
