It is the sound of a French person who is perhaps shocked, overwhelmed or generally freaked out.
It is also the sound of a Longmontian mom who will BE in France....WITH her whole family....FOR two weeks....IN less than a week.
And that Longmontian mom HAS started to write her to-do list. But she hasn't yet started checking things off the to-do list.
And, oh yeah. One of the Longmontian mom's daughters has a science experiment to finish and project-ize before they all leave the country.
So the Longmontian mom is freaking out.
