Asked me in demotic French
To luncheon at the Cannon Street Hotel
Followed by a weekend at the Metropole.
“Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, cest soir?” Creepy Mr. Eugenides just propositioned the speaker for some backdoor bowling, if you know what I mean.
Demotic refers to the language of the people; in this context, it probably means colloquial or vulgar.
