Frenchmen!

I can remember one morning around this time bringing Lord Darlington coffee in the breakfast room, and his saying to me as he folded The Times with some disgust: "Frenchmen. Really, I mean to say, Stevens. Frenchmen."
"Yes, sir."
"And to think we have to be seen by the world to be arm in arm with them. One wishes for a good bath at the mere reminder."
Kazuo Ishiguro, The remains of the day

só estás a aguçar a curiosidade, achas bem?

não sei porquê mas li o diálogo in a sancie way. Especialmente a parte "Really, I mean to say, Stevens. Frenchmen." e aquela pausa que se conhece tão bem ;)

(isto é um elogio, atenção! :$)

beijo grande *
