Get the vo­cab: souris

Living France - - Language -

Souris means mouse, and as in English is the name for both the lit­tle ro­dent as well as the com­puter ac­ces­sory. La mon­tagne a ac­couché d’une souris means ‘much ado about noth­ing’ or ‘mak­ing a moun­tain out of a mole­hill’. In France, in­stead of a tooth fairy visit­ing chil­dren at night, it’s a pe­tite souris (lit­tle mouse).
