“Are you Italian?” my friends would ask.

“Not that I know of, but my dad was adopted so I might be.”

“You could be, you’re kind of tan so you look Italian.”

My spirit would fly a bit higher every time I heard someone say it.

Even though I had never thoroughly studied a language before I thought I would be able to easily pick up my native tongue.
