Your Father is a Papa Poulet

Backstory: Mom was on a business trip in Europe.

I am ready to go home.  Your statue of Liberty made me homesick for American soil.

Too much socializing with 30 year old Europeans for me. They can drink all night, get 5 hours of sleep and still function at meetings the next day.  Last night, however, I sat with the French contingent to practice la langue (quel horreur) and one woman was describing her husband as “papa poulet”.  I asked her what it means and it is father hen.  Don’t you love that?  They don’t have an expression like we do for “mother hen” so it is funny that they have one for daddies.  However, I think your father is a papa poulet extraordinaire.

Just thought I would add to your vocabulary.

Bon weekend.

      It’s actually “papa poule”, not “poulet” – and there is also the “maman poule”. Works for both parents. I had neither of them. :)
