Paid off the last of the Alto, and got a confirmation email from the really sweet salesperson, Denis. He’s French-Canadian, as you might guess by that name. At the end of the email, he wrote:
Seulement 12 dodos, as the kids say!
I knew seulement meant only because it’s one of the 14 words of French I remember from three years of high school French classes.
But, dodos? Like dodo birds? Hmm…
A quick Google search ensued. Ah, dodo is french slang or baby talk meaning “sleepy time” or “beddy bye” in English. Now I get it!
Seulement 12 dodos jusqu’au jour je rencontre ma Alto
As if I can sleep, I am so excited… Maybe I should study more French!
