via Daily Prompt: Notorious

It was exciting to be there

at the Paris Omnisport in Bercy.

Even getting there was fun,

the five of us, arriving late,

checking in before taking the Metro

because it was rush hour

and we were late already.

‘Five tickets for Bercy,’

our guide asked, in English.

The ticket attendant shrugged and pouted.

Ok, the accent was broad and Irish

but Bercy remains Bercy.

‘Trois billets pour Bercy,’ I said,

message received.

Complaints were muttered

about the French and, ironically,

their inability to understand.

At the Palais de Omnisport,

credentials verified,

we marched inside,

the show’s begun.
