Voice off of the father:"Un day the Eiffel Tower decided to leave on holiday on our premises, with La Rochelle. In its bag, it puts its snack, its brush with tooth and of waxing for its shoes and hop!... veiled part for the edge of the sea.
Here with La Rochelle, everyone shouted: " the Parisian one! prepare! it was panic..."
(While the voice of the father grows blurred, that of the child begin again)
Voice of the child:
"My dad said to me that the day when I was born, it occurred an incredible thing to La Rochelle! An immense iron tower came to visit his cousins.
My dad said to me that when it went, it squeaked as the wheel of my poussette. In La Rochelle, his cousins the towers prepared to receive it. They took a bath to be cleaned and put far too much soap... So much that their hats disappeared almost under the bubbles from soap... So much that the trawlers could not leave the port any more, that I would have agreed to see that!..
The large clock, it, was wrapped for not that one sees it under his shower. Everyone wanted to see passing the tower, even turns HLM, They said: " After all, also one is to us towers!.. that I do not believe in it...
My dad also says that others snobaient the Eiffel tower. I do not know what that wants to say. I believe that the snobs like well that one speaks about them, even when they do anything. Good.
When the Eiffel tower arrived, they did everything a very large festival. They danced the tango to give pleasure with Parisian, and the hammer to give pleasure. It is far, I had hardly been born... Then...
My dad said to me that after, the Eiffel tower wanted to bathe, it was very hot... then good! It plunged and hop! that made an enormous wave which wet everyone! It is that it is large the Eiffel tower!
Then as it rusted, it left, and veiled!
(the voice of the father appears again)
