from the dinner party last Friday:

The guests were all Rwandan and everybody was speaking mostly French with occasional English or Kinyarwanda. Except me and Lindsay who were mostly signing with occasional English or French.

stepmother: ... so Lindsay is trilingual; she speaks English, French, and ASL.
Rwandan guest: Oh, so she's not an American then.

much hilarity and mockery of the United States ensued.
