Marry Me and I Will Take You All Over the World is best summarized by it's sub-title: Quotes and Tidbits from a Life of Love. Many families will recognize their own shenanigans from this book. Since it is written for anyone who can read, I have omitted lots of material that might be considered offensive. Here's one I probably should have retained: It's 1984; an American colleague is visiting us in Paris to be honored for technical contributions to the Society of Petroleum Engineers. He thanks everybody: merci beaucoup (and they say Americans do not speak foreign languages!). He really should have stopped there, though. Instead, he continues in his best French: I would like to sleep with all of you, (je voudrai .....), when he meant to say I love you all, (je vous aime.) You'd think the French would be upset, but in fact they hooped and hollered . at least my buddy attempted their language, and did not just assume that they all speak English. They get a bad rap, the French, for brusqueness ... and rightly so (just kidding, France.) But actually they can be really nice; and Paris is a great cultural and architectural city (oh la la!). So ... that's one of the many I excluded; wait until you get to the ones that made the book.
