Annals of Dullardness

Okay, I know this should be obvious, but it never occured to me that the “un” and “une” in French that mean “a” in English are the same words as the “un” that means “one.”

I’ve been asking for “un baguette” for two weeks every morning, and the nice woman at the boulangerie has been repeating back to me “une baguette.” I couldn’t figure out why.

I am a dullard.
