Obion posted a funny strip about this well known and difficult French greeting: the bise. Women and children readily do it upon meeting someone familiar. Men, less so.

Une petite histoire de famille

faire la bise



serrer la main: give a handshake

serrer:  to squeeze 

je ne sais plus trop: can’t remember

toujours est-il que…: the fact remains that

alors que: while

éprouver: to feel

mettre à l’écart: to isolate

hanter: to haunt

vexé: offended, hurt, annoyed

je me suis rendu compte que: I realized that

culpabiliser: to feel guilty

dans un sens: in a way

ça fait un bien fou: it does a world of great, it’s revigorating.
