Dear France, I'm due a visit.

I have a love affair with France. "But Shelley, the people are sooo rude." Says who?
I have never found it to be so. They are nationalistic. Aren't we too, dear star-spangled flag-flyers? And who would really enjoy loud Americans who come over on vacation and speak English VERY LOUDLY as though you are stupid not to know THEIR language? Hmmm?
