A beautiful use of language

April 4, 2007

I was chatting with an acquaintance of mine recently, telling her about my present circumstances. She’s from the Czech Republic and although her English is very good, I tried to answer as simply as possible.

I told her I was too expensive and not a ‘yes man’.
She replied, “oh, you’re not a marionette”

How much more elegant and poetic. I found it quite delightful.
