I just learned that the French word (or phrase) for wand is baguette magique. 🥖🪄

@adoran2 Haha! Next time I buy a baguette, I’m going to wave it around, expecting magic! 🪄🎩

@adoran2 If it’s “magic wand”—“wand” on its own would probably just be “baguette.” It turns out the name of the bread is a reference to its shape, which leads to the even more delightful fact that the French word for chopsticks is “baguettes.” Blows my mind, lol
