English!

Somehow most sincere hearts are also most self-doubting.

Take for example my mother-in-law’s.

She was so self-conscious about being a non-native-English speaker when she visited us first time in the US that once she said:

“You know what, it is really different English here. Yesterday I was watching a program on the TV and could not understand a word!”

“Well, mom, you *do* understand a lot of English!”

“But I couldn’t!”

“What program were you watching?”

“El Mundo!”

“Mom, that is a SPANISH program and none in the family knows a word from that language!”
