Another instalment of what my foreign wife says ...
Tuesday, April 21, 2020
I've said this before, but for those of you who didn't read my older blogs, ... I'm Canadian. My wife and I live in Canada. My wife is German, just German and she's lived for more than 30 years with "landed immigrant" status.
Anyway, what is curious about her brain is that her first language is German, ... her second language is French, and English is her third language. So in terms of languages her brain is wired "differently". When something comes up about the origins, or spelling of a word, she will often educate me on the Latin root of an English word.
Anyway, she was in the middle of doing something, and I started asking her a question, and this gem came out of her mouth:
"I can't multi-task right now ... just let me task."
