ecoutez et repetez

March 18, 2005

The other day I decided to try out the CDs that came with one of the Japanese grammar books I’m studying from. I spent an evening repeating phrases that illustrate various if-then constructions. And now I find they’re stuck in my head, like pop songs. I keep muttering to myself phrases like the catchy “if there is an earthquake now, the city will be destroyed”, and the sweet “if you love her, you should tell her how you feel”. It’s doing my head in.

Odd things have been getting stuck in my head lately. A couple of weeks ago I read ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, by Margaret Atwood, and I was whistling that for a couple of days afterwards.
