I was home sick (again) yesterday. The benefit was that I got to finish a book I had gotten half-way through, then got to start and finish a second book. The books couldn’t have been more different: Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell, and The Penultimate Peril, the 12th Series of Unfortunate Events book by Lemony Snicket.

The funny thing was that each of these books used a very uncommon French phrase. The fact that they would both use this phrase and I would read it on the same day was entirely amusing.

The phrase was noblesse oblige.

I know, right?
