French word of the day: cinquieme rue

Def: Fifth Avenue

At least according to the drunk 70-year-old Alison and I met at Hotel du Nord last night. I think it should still technically be Cinquieme Avenue, but "rue" has that certain je ne sais quoi, je pense...

And the other gem from the night: ma caille. It literally means my quail, but it's another sweet term of endearment like chou (cabbage).


  1. MUCH prefer being called a little quail to little cabbage. Connotations are...sweeter.

  2. My father called me mon petit chou for years .. I loved being his little cabbage.

    Fifth Avenue has a nice ring ( in any language lol)

    Is today Vegan Monday ? I am trying !!
