Broyer du noir

Le mot du jour : “Broyer du noir”

Broyer du noir (to crush some black shades) is an expression that comes from the XVI° century and it means to have dark thoughts, to feel blue. Apparently it comes from the painters when they used to crush their pigments to make some paint.

So to all of you people who struggle on Monday mornings, that expression is for you!

Courage! Only 5 days until the next weekend 🙂
