Je fais chou blanc.
zhuh fay shoo blah. Click below to hear this.*
My mind is a blank.
Blanc means both
white and blank. You knew that, right? And Le chou is cabbage. I suspect you already knew that, too.
So this is a frightening thought. I am making white cabbage. Really? What does cabbage have to do with the fact that My mind is a blank?
A blank mind feels more like fluffy teddy bear stuffing than cabbage, if you ask me. Uncooked cabbage is crunchy. It has texture and character and a distinctive taste. Cooked cabbage is bland, mushy, and dull, and it’s not something I want my brain to resemble.
Come to think of it, maybe that’s the point. I’m throwing out the mental cabbage and going shopping for some ideas. See you later!
