Jackie's 4get Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

I went to a french school in Algiers, Bois de Boulogne .I started grade 1 there. I didn’t speak french but I picked it up quickly. My teacher, Madame Baunier, felt like she needed to ask my sister and I if we were twins. Of course she asked in french :

“Etes vous jumelle?”[translated :”Are you twins?”]

I didn’t know what that was , and I never bothered to ask . I don’t look anything like my sister , so it never occured to me why anyone would ask that .

I responded : “Non, nous sommes Canadiennes” “No were canadian”

In my mind it was an answer that I was proud of and made sure everyone knew it too . Everyone in class started laughing . I felt like a smart-ass .
