The Dumb Joke Barrier

Well, I have crossed another linguistic barrier- I have made a joke in French.

Yesterday, while buying my morning pastry in the pâtisserie, I accidentally bonked my head on a low-hanging sign, which was sort of amusing to the woman who works there, and also sort of amusing to me, so we both laughed.

And when I went to pay for my pastry, I said: "Et un comprimé, s’il vous plait !"

(and an asprin please)

Yes, it's a dumb joke, but it made her laugh. And so, I have broken the dumb joke barrier!
