Probably! Sloppy talking? LOL! I doubt that very much taxlady. Are you bilingual? I bastardize french whenever I try. I can understand most of whats said to me, but heaven help me if I try to string a sentence together.

Yes, for some values of bilingual. I don't pass for Quebecoise, but I do understand (most of) what they say and can speak and read it. I can sort of write it.
