Gurrrrrrl! Ha ha ha ha ha!

Everything in France is so much better than in the U.S., how can you even think this?

Staying in shape while traveling internationally is always so difficult. But Hugo has discovered the perfect workout without spending a single minute in the gym: Pushing a paint roller over a house.

"Smugmental?" Nicely coined, Fauxprof.

I love the many literary devices that Karen Moy incorporates into her storytelling. The duplicate-plot-in-an-Ask-Wendy-letter device allows Mary to give advice to Dawn without giving advice to Dawn. Which means the advice is meant for someone else, probably us. Is Karen Moy the real Hugo? Don't leave us Karen Moy. We will never get over you. Never!

Don't get excited, folks. There's no way that the Jamaican bartender story would have been any better than the French house painter story.

“I’m worried that all those fish we enjoyed seeing behind glass are now swimming freely around my feet. I wish all fish were in a tank and we could have the ocean to ourselves. Oh, Hugo!”

Wait... what? I’m not sure what your point is, Hugo, but they belong in the ocean. The tank is their prison.

Look at all the people with their pointy finger in the air chanting, "We're number one! We're number one!" at the fish.

I want to add that I've been to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. I usually don't enjoy aquariums but this one is really spectacular and fun. If Aquarium is modeled after the Georgia Aquarium, those are supposed to be whale sharks, and this room is truly beautiful.

"... or as we say in my mother country where I will be returning in a few days after I'm done painting my host family's house never to return or to see you again, and where everything is better, even the sunsets, and the sun rises, (if you know what I mean, Dawn), 'je me sens paisible.' Don't you?"

Dawn seems to have driven off the pier and her car is sinking in the bay. I'm glad she put on her sleeves; it's awfully cold at the bottom of the ocean.

That shirt is some kind of crazy paint magnet, sucking up gobs of paint while protecting his arms, face, and precious hair from every single purple drop.

How to Paint a House

(in France)

by Victor Hugo

1) Lean wooden ladder against wall that you want to paint.

2) Roll a paint roller over the wall.

3) Fin.

But June does draw legs well.

Mary's eyes roll so far back in her head that she sees her own brain.

"His name is Hugo. Like the car!"

Hold on, there, Hugo. That's my gig. I've spent over a decade putting words into the mouths of those fishes. I'm thinking he's gonna say, "I may be a stupid fish, but at least I'm not a stupid human. Ha Ha."
