Happy New Year 2021

Bye bye, 2020!

Lots of things happened in 2020 and on top of everything, Quino, the creator of Mafalda died. It’s only fair that I express my thoughts for 2021 through his cartoons and look, I found one that is particularly spot on!

I hope all is well with you and again, I wish you a Happy New Year!

    How do we say ROTFL in French? (Rolling on the floor laughing) That is just so perfect!

        Merci pour ton conseil… J’espère avoir de nombreuses opportunités de l’utiliser en 2021.

          Espérons aussi! C’est surtout les ados qui disent ça, j’ai dû demander à mes enfants comment on dit ROTLF en français!
          Bonne continuation pour les cours de français et la découverte de livres français dans le texte original.

    Spot on indeed! This Mafalda is such a character.

      Thanks! Each time I pick a Mafalda comics, I laugh. Even the strips about the 1960s politics are still funny today. I love it. (I think that France has a long love relationship with Mafalda)
