This is my contribution to Sanni's handwriting meme. I choose french because she wrote in German and french is my second mother tongue.

The first sentence is very difficult to pronounce if you have to do it quick ! "Trois gros rats gris dans trois gros trous ronds rongent trois gros croutons ronds"

The words in the 2nd sentence are pronounced exactly the same way but are written different. That makes the French language so complicated. Poissons sans boisson c'est poison !

Thanks for the chuckles this morning. I’ve bookmarked this post to return periodically and may need to add a link in my Smiley Saturday post … just because. Number 9 is priceless! LOL
Hugs and blessings,

Yesterday Hubby's computer screwed up and he blamed me! I eventually was able to fix his computer's problem, but I reminded him that it was "his" problem and not mine!

I liked #2 and 8 best. 8 reminded me of how you don't let a dog know your scared otherwise you might get bit.

Applause, applause, applause! I got a freaking knot in my tongue now. I tried to say that special French tongue twister 3 times fast... and it turns out I'm lucky I don't have to submit this comment in a voice mail :-)

As to the handwriting: It's beautiful - but I expected nothing else!
Thanks for playing along!

Der Zungenbrecher ist soooo cool. Fischer's Fritze ist ein Witz dagegen. Ich glaub, ich hab 'ne graue Ratte in meiner Zunge eingeknotet. *LOL*
