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…

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.

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

Roosevelt, the policy's main goal was non-interference and non-intervention. The U.S. would instead focus on reciprocal exchanges with their southern neighbors, including through art and cultural diplomacy.
