surprise visit

This morning I was doing my normal unemployment routine (eat breakfast with MG, surf, watch podcasts... toodle around... eat second breakfast... think about getting out of my pjs and about going to the gym...) when I heard a car pull up in the driveway.

It was the gendarmes which really surprised me. When I answered the door they asked if I was MilkJam - I said yes. They said that they were sent over by the DST to look further into things.


Yup things. Apparently while in the final stages of my nationality application some flags were raised in regards to my name being on some list somewhere and they just need to double check things.


Dude, thank god they were country cops and more curious about the wooden house out here than the American living in it but still it made me really nervous. I mean it sounds crazy but I've got scenarios of deportation running through my head! eeep!!

I'd just like to state, quite categorically, that your recent visit from the DST has absolutely nothing at all to do with your recent mention on A Taste of Garlic!

Although, being honest, I rather suspect than anyone who has been runner up (or even winner) of the Rant of the Week Award should really expect the attention of national security forces from time to time!

All the best

I take back my comment - there are too many holes in your story!! La DST n'existe plus ma chère !!

PS. But I still would've been in my pyjamas.

that is strange. How long has it been since you submitted your nationality file?

I always love reading your blog on the 1st of April!
