Ch. 3 teaser

Meet the Fait Accompli, the world’s most mediocre vehicle.  In French License chapter 3 you’ll also meet many characters I’ll adapt to in a middling manner, including my co-workers and my keyboard.

Here’s an extract:

My keyboard didn’t have the familiar Q-W-E-R-T-Y letters in the upper-left-hand corner.  Instead it read ‘A-Z-E-R-T-Y’  The letters Q and Z are so prevalent they’re worth nothing in French scrabble.  So, their placement on the keyboard was swapped with the A and W, respectively.  The M was also moved, along with other characters popular in English.  Maybe the inventor was trying to avoid being labeled a ‘bqstqrd son of q zhore.’

You can read the full chapter for free in the online sample.
