avoir tort (avwahr-tor)
: to be wrong
Il a tort, Smokey. Le nom pour cette fleur c'est coquelicot, et non pas smokelicot! He's wrong, that Smokey. The name for this flower is "coquelicot" and not "Smokelicot"!
Book Update: Your Edits Needed!
After reaching the one-fourth mark on Friday, we begin this week with two more chapters for the upcoming book (working title is "Vignettes from the Var").
A little field of coquelicots... and a story by Smokey.
Smokey says: Today, I share with you the name of my favorite flower!
Here it is, stick your nose in!
The name is even cooler: S-M-O-K-E-L-I-C-O-T.
Enjoy the field of smokelicots and have a nice week!
