Faux Pas – Day 20 of 30 Day Drawing Challenge Part II


Ignore the crappy quality of the picture – these are headphones, and they are designed to protect the rest of us from your shitty choice in music.

Sound quality from headphones these days can be pretty spectacular, and even the cheapest will provide better sound quality than blaring your music out of the tiny cheap speaker on your cell phone.

As an added bonus, you can use them just about anywhere you would normally force others to listen to your music: on the train, in the metro, walking down the street… I highly recommend them.

For those who will say this doesn’t count as a faux pas, a faux pas is defined as a tactless act or comment, tact being defined as adroitness or sensitivity in dealing with others – this being a socially clumsy act, it qualifies.

  1. Interesting take on the assignment… (other’s faux pas… what’s the plural of faux pas, anyway???) I like the carved-in-stone feel of the drawing here.

    • You know, it didn’t even occur to me that the prompt might mean “YOUR faux pas” – arrogance?

      Anyway, the plural of “faux pas” (false step) would be “faux pas”. The only way to tell would be the context, notably the article in front of it: un faux pas (sing), des faux pas (plur). You see why French is so hard to learn?
