I have a close friend who is a real Francophile, having worked in both Brussels and Pau she has a habit of using French colloquialisms and expressions. One I have often seen her use is this above and the phrase mon œil, which means literally my eye. It is used to express incredulity or disbelief at something or someone. Great, as you can use it surreptitiously and know one will know. 🙂
Of course I have had a chance to use it quite a bit over the last 48 hours. I mean what about the European elections?
Always in good company!
