100 words, Michel, late 70s

Michel was my mother's friend's French boyfriend. He looked just like Bryan Ferry, right down to the highly stylish if slightly foppish suits and glossy, sharply parted black hair. Unlike Bryan Ferry, he had a French accent and he was dating my mom's friend. He was some sort of businessman who traveled to New York from Paris quite often. He met Candy at Sutdio 54. His English was OK, but I recall he said "neighborhood" as "neblewood." He would sometimes end up in our kitchen, waiting for my mother's friend, Candy, and complaining that she was crazy. She was.
