ALIENS? COOL!

In lesson 11, we studied the parts of the body (well, not all of them) and some physical descriptions. At one point, I talked about the doctor, but finally I stick to my favourite topic: Aliens. Now, sorry, I can't avoid the doctor part, but, I agree with you, some of the doctors I met in my life are a little bit like aliens! Before the doctor stuff, let's see the physical and psychological aspects of humans; the character for instance. Did I tell you about my monkey's character? Here is some vocabulary related to it (Yes. A monkey is a person):

- Qu'est-ce que tu penses de Paul Gauvin?
- C'est un homme intelligent et franc.
- Il est cultivé, c'est vrai. Mais tu ne crois pas qu'il est un peu pédant?
- Non. Il est profond et observateur. J'aime beaucoup les esprits critiques.
- Hum...
- Et de Rachel? Qu'est-ce que tu penses d'elle?
- Je la trouve bête et intolérante. Très prétentieuse, en plus. Plutôt antipathique.
- Tu n'est pas très gentil avec elle; elle a certaines qualités; elle est très belle et sociable.
- Etre belle, ce n'est pas une qualité, c'est une caractéristique physique.

FEELING GOOD / FEELING BAD ?

You know everything about body parts, good or bad mood, qualities and failings. You are ready for the “docteur”. In my case, I'd rather prefer the vet, for my pet. But, it's nearly the same thing, don't you think? Am I a little to obsessed with my monkey?
