Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: use a word, anywhere in your post, that begins with the prefix “de-.” Extra points if your word ends with “ed”! It’s all about the fun – have some!
We were delighted to be invited by our French friends for a dinner. Well, actually, it was the rite de passage of their daughter, Camille to be held in a palais de danse. So we put our designer clothes with some eau de toilette and eau de cologne. The hotel de ville was in a cul-de-sac street so it was hard to find but we’ve managed it.
We knew our de rigeur and arrived on time, said hello to our friends and gave the present to the debutante. Camille was lovely in her pink crepe de chine gown. She was enjoying her joie de vivre and with her escort danced the pas de deux.
We greeted our friends and sat by our designated table with other guests. They gave us some vin de pays and later on eau de vie and crème de menthe liquors with langue de chat biscuits. The whole place has got this folie de grandeur atmosphere but we didn’t mind.
The chef came and presented his piece de resistance – roast lamb. His coup de grace with the knife was amazing. And of course, the debutane’s delicious birthday cake with 18 candles was there. For dessert, we had the delectable dulce de leche and crème de la crème, finished by crème de cacao liquor. What a great night to be de-stressed!
