Piece de resistance

Piece de resistance


We’re so different. I think in circles, he thinks in lines. I see high, he sees straight. I make complexity, he prefers simplicity. And the way I speak? Sometimes drives him nuts. I often use idioms–which JD is still getting used to–but when I use phrases from another language, he’s way over it.

So, what did you mean by that? I heard you use it last week too, and I want to know what it means. We sat in the car and JD asked what pièce de résistance meant. I explained that this french term basically refers to the best part or feature of something. I used examples to further my point and he just smiled and shook his head. His wife is weird.

When we got home, we decided to take Polo on a walk. Before we leashed him up, JD linked his collar and said, I guess that means Polo is the pièce de résistance of our family. Oh, Internet, my husband is weird too!

    Mais oui, bien sur, Polo, il est la piece de resistance! He is such a cutie! Si mignon! (I majored in French at IU, took it 4 years in high school, so happy I got a chance to use it a bit here! 😉 ) Bonjour!

    You should have put a fedora on him and made him into a little furry Indiana Jones.

    OMG, sooo funny! In our family it’s vice versa, before we got married I thought my hubby could speak french! I only found out that he was only pretending when I saked him to speak to a french person. And he uses piece de resistance every time he really likes smth! )

    Polo is priceless! We should hook him up with our little princess, Dixie Lee. Polo is a Maltese, right? Regardless, he makes a great subject.

  15. Cindy Meadors -

    I am nuts over this dog!!! I have wanted a Maltese for years now and every time I see a photo of him I just want to go buy one. That jacket………STOP IT, you’re killing me!!!!

    You have that rare thing in a photographer – a breadth of literary knowledge and the ability to wield it accurately

    You guys crack me up. It’s so romantic the way you speak of him and the things that you do. Love it! 😀

    Every time I see a picture of him dressed I wonder how he acts when you put them on. I have a baby poodle and when we give her her rain coat she walks in a funny dancing way and when the clothes have legs she refuses to walk altogether (until she sees something interesting and starts walking that way, with a thorough shake every few steps)

    So, do all the other dogs make fun of little Polo for wearing clothes? 😉

    Becker was talking trash about Polo on Thursday. He said Polo is fat and that you use liquify to make him look good.

    Are you going to take that from him? I vote retaliation!!!

    I’m French and I wouldn’t use this term for a dog, but it’s really appropriate for a wedding cake for example! 😉
