I need help with a bit of French for my book. If any of you could help, I'd be quite grateful!
A grown man working for the FBI goes back to his home city [in the USA] to work a case, and gets an unexpected call from his irate French mother [living in said city] whom he hadn't yet called and informed of his presence...
Here is what I'm trying to say:
Mom....Mom... I was going to tell you! I'm sorry! No, I was going to call right after lunch! .....Yes. Love you. Bye.
Here is the consensus of what I've found online, though some translators translate it funny [which is why I don't trust it]:
Maman...Maman...J'allais vous dire! Je suis désolé! Non, j'allais vous appeler après le déjeuner! ....Oui. ...vous aimez. Bye.
...would a grow man say maman? If memory serves, don't mostly kids say that?
Thank you so much for any help!
