Re: Clair, are you paying attention? Useful expressions!

Here's one I read in the local paper today - Bobologie. We all know what bobos are.

Pat, give us a bit of background or at least the sentence in which the word appears......just so that I know when it is appropriate to use itSmile [:)]

From bobos, meaning minor bumps and bruises, which clog up A and E.
Just out of interest, my grandson who is struggling with bilingualism said to me the other day 'I have a bobo' as he showed me a large bruise on his leg.

Ticking over, just about.

Mint - it's from an interview with the family medical practice which we go to. The Grandson of the founder of the practice, now 91, is joining them soon:

If you scroll down you'll see their view of the changes in medical practice over the years, and bobologie is mentioned.
They're a lovely family.

Pat, thanks for the link.  I enjoyed reading the article.  Also very interested to read that after a doctor qualifies, they do a further 3 years to become a généraliste.

If memory serves, in the UK, they only do a 6-month course to become a GP.  Anybody knows if I am correct or perhaps merely talking nonsense?

Daft Doctor, if you are around, do you know the answer to this one?
