Feel like going to the movies this evening?
There are plenty of ways to invite someone out for the evening, but this is one of my favorites. What it really asks is, Does going to the movies this evening sing to you?
This expression makes the activity sound so seductive! You are responding to the siren song of the movies, or the company of the person asking you, or just an evening away from the kids or the dishes. Oui, ça me chante! Here I come!
And in a couple more days, I’ll give you two more possible answers to the invitation, in case you are somewhat less than enthusiastic. Stay tuned!
