This is Moniseur Loisel. He is currently working as a clerk in the Ministry of Education. He enjoys his job a lot. This morning, he received an invitation from the Minister of Education and Madame Ramponneau telling him that he and his wife are invited to a party at the ministry. He was excited and thrilled because he is sure that his wife will definately be pleased to hear this.
Here is an invitation to a party at the Ministry!
Thanks a lot!
Later that day...
It's just that I do not have anything nice to wear
Look, look! It's an invitation from Madame Ramponneau and the Minister of Education himself!
Here's 400 francs. Go buy yourself a nice dress.
What's wrong Mathilde?
Oh... I just don't have any jewelry to wear at the party
That's a good idea!
A few days later
I'm sure Madame Forestier has some that she could lend to you
Wow! I did not know that Mathilde was that self conscious. She even anxious about how people think about her
Madame Forestier let me borrow a very nice necklace for the party
