Why you want a French housemate...

Apparently, it is sometimes difficult for native French speakers to distinguish in English between the past participle and the present participle. Such an incorrect usage can be very entertaining! For example, when we posted an ad two years ago on Craigslist for a housemate, a woman named Nathalie answered: "Hi, I am from Paris and I am interesting in the bedroom..."

She got the room!
