I know! What part of India? 
I ask because I think Americans are about the only place in the developed “free” world that are taught only one language. Reminds me of a joke. Want to hear it? Ok, not the same writing as in person, but here goes!

What do you call a person that speaks 3 languages? Trilingual 

What do you call a person who speaks 2 languages? Bilingual 

What do you call a person who speaks 1 language? American!

I joke about this but am just as guilty mostly. I did go to Oaxaca before my daughter was born for a couple of months to do a Spanish Immersion program. I don’t use it enough to be proficient for sure, but can scrape by if necessary. If you ever get the chance to go there Joel you should do it. It is an absolutely gorgeous part of Mexico. Also, I thought maybe you had picked Montreal because you maybe knew French. What is your native language called? 
I also speak the language of chocolate milk! Haha!stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

English is so powerful language.. My mother tongue is called Malayalam. I bet you havent heard ofhaha. I too agree with that. There should be one universal language but it should not be imposed in a way that destroy the culture and tradition of the minorities. Infact i was able to communicate with you because of this language. How do you see people from other communities Lorie? I know there are Americans who discriminate people based on their color. I have a fair complexion but still i have faced some discrimination, subtle though. I am not telling you are like that. But it still persists  right? Its so painful

Oh thank you Joel. You just made my night. You are so kind. It’s been a rough day as one of my kitties is sick and I’ve spent the day too much here just killing time and waiting to go to the vet, etc. He is very old, over 18 years, and very precious to me. He will make it a little longer I think. Now I get to go out in the crisp night air and walk! I’m excited to not smoke today more than days past. Thanks for sharing the journey. And yes, to what you said before, I agree, “the tru essence of life lies in it’s uncertainty “ I love this thought.

Yes, I have 3 kitties and a small dog. I love animals very much and cannot imagine life without them. This one’s brother was kind of chubby, but this one is not. They were both big boys though, part Maine Coon and in his prime this one weighed about 17 pounds. Now he is a waif. My younger two are brother and sister and they are just right. I try not to let them get too chubby as like for us, it isn’t healthy. They all sleep with me too and I love it. Purring all night.

Good night Joel. I forget you are I think 3 hours ahead of me. Tomorrow will be your month right? We will have to celebrate!

Yes, they like to sleep with me, and I like it too. That is the thing about smoking. Always the stress of the next fix. Sometimes planning while still having one! Ugh. It creates so much stress really. Yes, be glad to not do this.

I just got back from my walk. It is definitely Fall weather and chilly. 

My Stepson is good! He lives in Seattle, so I don’t see him all the time, but usually once a month or so. We are quite close. His dad, my daughter’s dad, lives here in Portland. I don’t see him much either. Actually the last couple of years since my daughter is older I don’t. I’m ok with that. 
Do you have classes in person too or not because of Covid?
