I cannot even begin to tell you the number of times I have misspelled “Mediterranean” in the process of creating this post. It’s not like I thought I was a spelling-bee champion or anything but man has spell-check caused a serious blow to my confidence.
I’m seriously starting to question if my first language is English.
Actually, fun fact! For a blip in my life I was kind of, sort of, maybe just a little bit bilingual. I was in French immersion school from kindergarten until grade 6, which meant all of my classes were in French instead of English.
This could have led to me being completely bilingual, but then in grade 7 I switched to an English school where I not only lost most of my French, but I also discovered that my English skills were not entirely on point.
I was a history and foreign language nerd in high school. For a hot second I wanted to be a UN interpreter so I was taking French, Italian, German and European history all at once. I may as well just throw it out there that I also attended Model UN. 3 times.
I never said I was cool.
I think the real reason why I loved these languages was because of the food. Of the places I’ve visited along the Mediterranean coast 99.9% of them have delicious food. The .01% goes to that terrible meal I had in Marbella, Spain.
I took Italian for the pizza, French for the CHEESE and moules et frites and German…I have no clue how that happened.
So even though I can barely speak French, don’t remember any Italian and my English is questionable at times, at least I can eat this Egg Salad and feel like I got my Mediterranean fix.
