  • Thanks a lot. I was concerned by a possible negative nuance of the comment and I didn't understand it
  • neither did I ; those two words were very intriguing about a good work . "clever clogs " ?
  • It can be both. You can could call someone a clever clogs (it's something 3-12 year old may use as a phrase) but generally it would be teasing a little. I am attempting to learn French. Would anyone need help with their English in return for helping me with my French. By email? psg2000@gmail.com
