Here in the Netherlands, I'm often told I'm "so English."
"Hmm," I reply. "Is that not good?"
"It's nice, it's just that it's so you," is the usual answer. Okay.
But I start to doubt (as you do). How is it something supposedly good can sound…well… you know…a bit dubious?
Then I start to wonder. What if I were something more exotic, like, say... Italian, French or another latin flavour like Spanish or Portuguese? Would it be more appealing?
I'm 25% French, I am…what if that were more like 75%…or 100%? And if I spoke with an alluring accent? Would being "so French" sound more of a compliment maybe?
Have any of you ever wanted to be something more exotic? If so, what would you like to have been?
