I was hurrying home to get there ahead of the delivery men when I passed a greengrocer where I have an old acquaintance I'm very fond of. I waved at him and we called out a greeting and I was still smiling as I turned back to the street.
"Ah, le joli sourire !" said a man behind me. I turned around to see who it was. The man behind me looked roughly like the man in the picture above, but was smiling beatifically.
"Vous êtes célibataire ?" he asked.
I laughed and went on. Later, he came into a chocolate shop where I was buying some fruits enrobés (yum!) and handed out a leaflet to the cashier without noticing me. After he left, I asked if I could see it. They fished it out of the wastepaper basket and handed it to me. "Front de la libération de la France !" I read, but couldn't make heads or tails of it after that.
