I don’t know if you know what New York has been like this winter, but let me demonstrate for you:
And it has left me feeling cold, as well as:
So when a lovely Frenchman named Jacques asks if you’d be interested in receiving warm socks from France, you say, “Oui! Bien sûr!” (And, of course, “Merci beaucoup!”)
