Yesterday, George W. Bush and Nicolas Sarkozy had a "casual" lunch (punctuated by Bush's "I can barely speak English" comment), but Cecilia Sarkozy was nowhere to be seen. Why?
She apparently declined lunch with Bush, saying she had a throat ailment. She called Laura Bush about an hour before lunch saying that she and her children would not be able to make the gathering.
Sick as she was, she was seen Sunday taking a stroll, while her husband was seen wearing earphones and jogging. Yesterday, he apologized to Bush for giving his wife her cold.
Must not have been very serious, or else it was the "I don't want to be in the same room as him" variety of virus.
