Strange this subject should come up this morning. A quarter of an hour ago, OH was preparing to go dog walking. The weather looked like rain and I rushed out to bring in the washing (which hadn't long gone out and I wasn't best pleased, but that's by the way).
As they left, I called out "don't forget your.....", the only word coming to mind being impermèable ! I was stumped, not because I couldn't say mac or anorak or rain jacket or any of those things but I didn't know which of his many waterproof garments he was going to take on this heavy, sticky day which yet threatened rain.
There are occasions when only franglais will do, n'est-ce pas?
