Merde! Monday


A useful expression used in a variety of contexts and one of the first that newcomers to France might encounter. A lot.


"Merde" can also mean "break a leg" as an actor is about to go onstage. In France it is believed that (involuntarily) stepping on doggie doo with the left foot brings good luck, and when that happens you will hear, "It's ok it's my left foot!"
