J’ai les crocs!

J’ai les crocs!

zhay lay CROW! Click below to hear this.*

I’m starving!

Well, not literally, I hope. But that’s what we say when we can’t wait to sink our teeth into something substantial…burger, pizza, your favorite comfort food.

And those teeth turn out to be the whole point. Very pointy indeed. In fact, les crocs are those sharp teeth your dog uses to catch…you don’t want to know what. On you and me, they are called canine teeth because they are the human equivalent of your sweet little doggie’s flesh-tearing teeth.

And that’s why J’ai les crocs means I’m really hungry. You just really want to tear into something yummy. But maybe not rabbit stew–not your dog’s recipe, anyway.

  1. Ahh. I use this phrase often in English, but will now switch to French! It will be so much more dramatic.
