faux [foh] - artificial or imitation; fake Origin: French
re·al [ree-uh- genuine, not imitation; authentic.
I celebrate faux (pronounced fo in France but here in America, more accurately fawks!)
- Schoolyards and walkways are overrun with slush; it's a good thing we have faux boots to protect our feet and our wallets!
- I cannot even imagine anyone wearing anything but a faux fur to playground duty!
- As we cart tons of papers, it's a good thing that a faux bag or two help ease the burden!
- Bending over kids to read or confer makes wearing real pearls foolish, but with the faux kind, style is possible!
- Then there is the faux spring weather we have had of late. Those temps in the 40's during the day have been dipping back into the frigid zone where the piles of snow linger at night!
I also celebrate real because:
- Real friendships (the kind that help you smile through life's adversities) are one of the most empowering gifts on earth.
- Real hard work can move mountains (even though it can't make snow piles disappear!)
