This is all very intriguing and now has me pondering various switching techniques: Like is there a proper way to effectively, yet respectfully, “switch” topics. .... not seeming very effective. Maybe a little more: ....wearing face masks of course (sorry, imoji’s still haven’t had the C19 mod yet) Fun fact to confuse.. I’m half French.. when speaking “Frenglish” in northern Ontario we “open duh light” (on) an “close duh light” (off). .... we don’t usually pronounce the d in “and“ but sometimes we stall and say “an-duh“. DUH doors came first AN I guess DAT was good enough when switches came out. Update.. I’ve just been corrected by an old frenchy who tells me: “Is nuh-tang to do with door dum dum. Is be-cows you open duh kur-tens to let duh light ins an you close duh kur-tens to shut duh light ah-off” then with a big smile on his face he told me that “for such a smart guy you not to bright (laughs his ass off then then looks extremely serious) My beer run out with dis stupid conversation, how bout you open duh light in duh fridge and get me anoder one you fat COVID fawk.” That’s typical Northern French redneck humour for you.
