Things Parisians Said About Me

  1. At the Eiffel Tower, the ticket seller asked me how old I was so I could get the discounted ticket for 16 years and under.
    Me: 30. Her: Oh! Never mind!
  2. In Montmartre, an artist offered to paint me (I know this isn't a compliment), then said, "It's not a nude! Your father would kill me!"
    The next artist told my dad he had a baby face. He's 60.
  3. Also in Montmartre, while eating dinner outside in my yellow rain jacket our waiter said, "You look like Paddington Bear!"
    My mom said it didn't seem like a great pickup line.
