PARIS – When David Beckham announced that he had signed a five-month contract with France's Paris Saint-Germain soccer club, millions of fans of both Monsieur and Madame Spice started fantasizing about the Beckhams moving from the city of angels to the city of lights.

As it turns out, Becks and Posh's kids are already enrolled at schools in London, meaning that the 37-year-old legend will probably be commuting most of the time. All the same, here's what his schedule in Paris might look like:

Monday
From L.A. to OOH LA LA feels quite all right…

Thursday
Confirmed reports say Daddy Beckham will donate his entire PSG salary to a children's charity in Paris. Unconfirmed reports say this could lead to a cut in Thursday's weekly allowance check for Becks’ kids: Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper. In true French fashion: strike is called.

Friday
Afternoon practice, then out on the town with new PSG teammate, Zlatan Ibrahimovic (hair-swapping optional).

Saturday
Shopping, anyone? Posh gets even posher in the fashion capital of the world.

DEBATE: So, Posh Spice in Paris: Fashion Line? New Perfume? Photo Shoots? Not really about footy, now, is it? #Cynical?

Sunday
Tired of commuting by plane or Eurostar, Beckham steals his London Olympics’ boat, makes a right after Tower Bridge and drives his way across the Channel.

Central to the tragic absurdity of this war is the question of language. Vladimir Putin has repeated that protecting ethnic Russians and the Russian-speaking populations of Ukraine was a driving motivation for his invasion.
