Elle: So, Mom, am I half-Portuga and half-Gainesville?
Me: What? Half-what?
Elle: Well, like Anicia says she's half-German and half-Indian and that makes her really pretty. So am I half-Portuga?
Me: Do you mean half-Portuguese?
Elle: Oh, yeah.
Me: Yes. You are part Portuguese.
Elle: So what's my other half? Because, remember Mom, I was born in Gainesville.
Me: I remember that very clearly.
Elle: So I'm half-Gainesville, right?
Me: No. You're part German and Polish. Oh, and English and French.
Elle: I know I'm English. I don't speak Spanish.
