I routinely arrived five minutes late to Madame Kelly's fourth period French class.
Slinking into my seat, breathless and blushing, I would furtively slip that day's assignment to whomever I'd just copied it from the moment her back was turned.
Consequently, if, when in France, I have to manage any transaction more complex than a drink order, I am reduced to performing spastic pantomimes.
Madame is somewhere, laughing.
Happily, there are times when having someone else do my homework is all upside.
A lovely tech reporter at the New York Times has sifted through the zillions of available iPhone apps to give us the Top Ten Must-Have Apps (and a few runners up).
Nerds are so nice.
Wish I could say that in French.
