French Lessons: Il m’a posé un lapin
Rendezvous has long been one of my favorite French words as it can apply to a “meeting” of any sorts, from a visit to the dentist to a hot date. Il m’a posé un lapin is a phrase that makes me laugh. Literally “to put down a rabbit” is the French way of saying “he stood me up.” I’m still not sure how un lapin – a rabbit – has anything to do regarding human relations, so if you have any insights, please share them in the comments.
French Lessons is an ongoing series where I teach you French words while beefing up my Illustrator skills.
