This was just too funny of a story...My husband read it from a friend on Facebook.
"Tonight I was contentedly listening to some street musicians when a young Frenchman approached me and proceeded to ask me on a date. I thanked him, and politely refused. When he asked me why not, I could think of no response but "because it is forbidden". With a response like this, I think I must have seemed to be a very mysterious, romantic character... when, in fact, it's just because my French vocabulary is so limited. (In fact, I was only able to produce this response so quickly because every day at the train station, I read that it is forbidden to cross the tracks"
