All those articles you've read about French school lunches...

After living in France for nearly 20 years, I don't know all the words yet. Noah's school lunch menu said they were having "galopin."

Not knowing what that was, I looked it up:
"Galopin : Familier. Enfant plus ou moins effronté." [Slang. A rather bold child.]

I figured they must be eating the naughty kids at lunchtime.

When Noah came home, I asked him about it. I told him how I looked it up and everything.

Without skipping a beat, he told me that I was right, and they ate Marius.

I suggested that the parents of Marius might not be too happy about this, but Noah was unconcerned.
