Wise Beyond Her Months

The Francophones and I are heading to Toronto tomorrow morning, where we will remain until a). Sunday afternoon, or b). I end up punching one of them and get sent back to America.

You can probably tell that since I had such a good time on our Montreal outing that I'm looking forward to this longer one with some... anticipation?  Trepidation?  I'm taking the Lil' Bean's earlier advice to me, which was, "No face-punching Big Bean!"  She is indeed wise beyond her months.  (The Imperious Gillie-Bean pictured below: photo courtesy of Alpha and Omega and Their Many Adventures.)

Lil' Bean stands by her earlier advice: No Face Punching!

And quoting Churchill:
"Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen."

or Restraint is the Better Part of Valor. Lil' Bean thinks that this advice should be minded when dealing with the Frenchies.

Remember your training and be a lady. Channel Miss Elizabeth Bennett. I have suggestions for your country mix for the trip - Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy; Mammas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys; and Whiskey for my Men and Beer for my Horses. The Frenchies should love those three!

I recomend yoga breathing and just keep that picture of Gilly-Bean in mind. I know you will get through weekend, but I am sure some good stories will come out of it.
