This is a cartoon in five frames. It is set in a supermarket. In the first frame, a figure says ‘Oh, great. The cashier’s a chatter. I’m going to make a fool of myself, and hold up the whole line’. In the second frame, the figure says ‘Oh, great, he’s a mumbler too. Now all hope is gone. This is going to be brutal. Why do I even go into public anymore?’. In the third frame, the figure continues ‘No, calm down. Focus. This is just a supermarket. You’re a champion of French, you’ve had lots of conversations. You can do this. No problem’. In the next frame the shop worker says to the figure ‘Bonjour!’. In the final frame, the figure cries out.
