Surreal is when you’re memorizing kitchen vocabulary and find out that what you really need to know how to say is “rocket launcher.”

Random words that showed up on the screen of my cell phone yesterday as France continues to deal with the aftermath of the 11/13 attacks.¬† Definitions from WordReference.com.¬† It seems surreal that lately I’ve been trying to memorize the name of every single thing in my kitchen, while these are apparently the words that I need:

  • la perquisition: police search, police raid
  • le lance-roquettes: rocket launcher
