Thierry Gueorgiou's Cowboy Boots


Lisa is at the Swedish 5-days and spent some time today asking Thierry Gueorgiou questions. I don't know the details, but my guess is the conversation went something like this...

Lisa: You've been a great orienteer for a long time. You must have had some good coaching when you were a junior.

Thierry Gueorgiou: Oui. We were a bunch of juniors in France who trained a lot.

Lisa: Going to training camps?

Thierry Gueorgiou: Oui.

Lisa: Have you ever heard of Sid Richardson?

Thierry Gueorgiou: Sid? Hmmm...Sid? Oui, Sid...Sex Pistol, right?

Lisa: Ha, ha! No, not Sid Vicious (though some might say that Richardson is Vicious). No, Sid Richardson is where we have a training camp every year for juniors. It is really good. You should come and help coach the juniors.

Thierry Gueorgiou: That would be fun. I would like that very much. Working with juniors is always rewarding. Where is this training camp?

Lisa: In Texas. Not so far from Dallas.

Thierry Gueorgiou: Texas. I have never been there. The U.S. Dollar is so weak. It wouldn't cost much to go to Texas. When is this training camp?

Lisa: June.

Thierry Gueorgiou: June! In Texas! It must be hot as hell. You must be crazy.

Lisa: Well, June isn't so bad. It is much more comfortable than people think.

Thierry Gueorgiou: Hmmm...maybe I should come to Texas. With the U.S. Dollar so weak I could buy several pairs of cowboy boot.

Lisa: I would like to talk more, but I have to go help my husband buy some food. The only word he knows in Swedish is Jordnotssmor and he wants something else to eat today.

I don't know what "Jordnotssmor" means, but the rest of the pseudo interview was really funny!
"Peanut butter" would be my guess.

She should have asked about Trail-O. If I understood the results correctly, he won the European Trail-O competition held during the recent French 5 Day. But then I may have misread or confused the names.
