Dès que j’ai su, très tôt, que les romans existaient, j’ai compris que ma vie serait là-dedans. J’ai compris que dans toutes les histoires il y avait une place pour moi. Il suffisait de pousser un peu les personnages, les meubles et les décors et de m’y installer.

- I say you that we need 4 drawers and 3 shelves!

- NO! NO! NO! We need 3 drawers and 4 shelves!

(At any time, the IKEA Restaurant offers its Swedish meatballs in a warm and relaxed atmosphere)

- Now, it only remains to collect all the pieces.

- So, first, alley 124, location 96.

Much much later …

- That’s good, my Roudoudou! you found all of the pieces! Now, you only have to assemble everything,… once you have managed to fit everything in the car and that all elements will be at home, on the 4th floor, of course!

Bons baisers de Belgique <3

De l’autre côté de la frontière, on a l’impression de plus vous comprendre du tout, les copains. Mais c’est pas grave, on vous aime quand même.

Alors en cas de catastrophe au second tour, vous êtes les bienvenus, on vous offre l’asile politique. C’est un joyeux bazar mais vous verrez, on fait vachement bien les frites et la bière.
