Do you have all your ducks in a row for the meeting?
Fin (feminine fine) is usually an adjective, describing how fine or thin something (but not someone) is. But fin (invariable; that means there is no feminine form, no plural) is also an adverb, describing how someone does something, (il écrit fin, ee lay-kree FAA, he has tiny handwriting; coupez fin les oignons, koo-pay faa lay zuh-NYAW, chop the onions finely). It can also qualify an adjective , just as the adverb très (very) does.
So être fin prêt (ETT-truh faa PRAY) means to be ready, down to the finest/tiniest detail. In today’s phrase, I have addressed myself to a female whom I know very well, so I have called her tu, and I have made the adjective prête feminine. But fin doesn’t change, regardless of whom you are addressing.
Voilà! Now je suis fin prête for this post.
