A ‘Timely’ French Exit

The very beautiful Michelle Pfeiffer – you know her right? Well her NEW movie in 2021 is called “French Exit.” And reading about that movie is what brought on this post with useless or once-useless or notsomuch useless trivia! Anyway…

In case you didn’t know…To leave a party without telling anyone is called, in English, a “French Exit.” In French, it’s called a “partir à l’anglaise”, to leave like the English.

And in OTHER notsomuch useless news…

  • The blob of toothpaste that sits on your toothbrush has a name. A nurdle.

  • Sticking with animals – not birds – In the original 1902 stage version of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Dorothy did not have a dog, but a COW, named Imogene.
  • Sea Otters hold hands while they sleep. Awwww
