I speak International!

whilst pushing, or being trundled in, the wheelchair around London I didn't want to keep saying "excuse me please" so I decided to use something simple, easy to understand in any language - "beep beep"!

This worked wonderfully and almost everyone smiled and moved. One French lady smiled and said "beep, beep?" to which I replied in my best school french "Internationale oui?" she laughed and said "you are correct". So now we know, "beep beep"is International and I can speak it fluently! Feel free to use it.

chuckles, sandra.

Would that be 'beep beep' as in Road Runner?

Kindest regards



actually did you know that that was reportedly one of Mel Blanc's [many character's voice] biggest earners, there was only one take. He walked into the studio said it and went home. Now that job I could do!
