Ch. 32 teaser

Max is the name of this chapter in French License.  It’s a departure in style, a one-way dialogue.  The speaker is an office worker, and the conversation is taken liberally from one I overheard.  I’ve tried to translate while keeping the feel and the tone.  Mostly, you get the philosophy.  How do you play a game that’s rigged against you?  By cheating, of course.  Maybe this is why soccer is so popular over here.  Latin cultures appreciate a successful cheat, and cheer for their law-breaking player when he escapes punishment.

How will our speaker wriggle out of a speeding ticket?
