Thanks everyone for playing "Two Truths and a Lie." I enjoyed reading how each of the commenters reasoned it out even though most of you got it wrong. I am happy to report that my French has improved enough that I can actually have a conversation on important issues of the day even though I make many mistakes along the way. I have lots of career experience and a graduate degree in health policy, making me a bit more motivated than some to sort it all out. And despite the fact that last night I savored the chocolates my husband brought home from his most recent trip to Brussels, chocolate could disappear from my life tomorrow and there wouldn't be any serious repercussions.
Many of the French assume I am Portugese or perhaps Spanish but there's not a drop of either in me. My ancestors were all Ashkenazi Jews who left Germany, Poland, Russia, and Belarus to come to the U.S.
So there you have it. Thanks for playing. Thanks for the lovely comments. And thanks to all of you, even those who didn't share their thoughts, for reading. It's been (and will continue to be) my pleasure.
