Blowing an alpenhorn!
Actually, Daron's already pretty much got it. We went to the bank today to open our account and Daron greeted the gentleman and introduced himself and said a few casual words all in French, such that the man took us into his office, then said a whole big long slew of French stuff while I just stared at him, then he left the office -- I was thinking, oh boy, this will be rather difficult with him not speaking English! But when he returned, Daron asked him in French if he spoke English, and he looked confused and said yes, but why? Then we laughed and said we don't speak French! And he said - no - sir, your dialect and pronunciation was just like a native - I thought you were French! Nice. Daron got points for that... we found him a yummy dessert to celebrate all his day's successes.
Tomorrow we go meet friends in our new ward and have lunch with some of them. Then it's SHOPPING!
