Emportez donc ça plus loin…il est impossible de travailler au milieu d’un vacarme pareil..allez vous promener à la petite provence, et en revenant achetez de nouveaux biberons passage Choiseul!…Ah! Mr. Cabassol c’est votre premier enfant, mais je vous jure que ce sera votre dernier! (Take that farther away… I cannot work with all this noise…Go, take him for a walk in the park, and on the way back, buy some new baby bottles in the Passage Choiseul!…This may be your first child, Mr. Cabassol, but I swear it will be your last!), from the series Les bas-bleus (The Bluestockings)
