  1. Garconniere makes sense when you remember that garcon means boy.

  2. And, to follow up on the last comment, bibard makes sense if you think about the word imbibe. ;). Thanks for the info!

  3. Two great words there. Both sound familiar, as Kathy says, I know garcon, and so garconniere makes sense. I think I knew bibere, but had forgotten it.
