La niña has finished fiddling around and is now doing some home work. She said, “Wish me luck.”

Bonne chance.

“Wrong kid. Wrong language,” she said and I heard her eyes rolling.

Bueno Lucko.

“Wrong. That’s just wrong,” she said and stomped off to her room where nobody’s around to inflict bad Franglish on her.
