My mother is part Irish and French. My dad was German and French. I like the French heritage, anything French is awesome. They were French Canadian. I’ve always been drawn to French things. It might be my grandfather’s influence. He was a very cool guy. My mom would use some French words. Everybody was proud of being French, even if it was French Canadian.

I love anything Irish as well. I love reading books about Ireland. The way they use their words, it’s like, oh my God, my mom said it the exact same way! It would tickle me half to death. I hadn’t heard some of those sayings in 50 years. They’re so colorful. And they’re fun, they like to screw around. I wonder where I get that from… – Christine
