Now who’s eating humble pie

I met a new friend in my CrossFit class last month, and we get along very well.  We have a few things in common and often chat before and after class.  This month, our friendship left the gym and went out for drinks and appetizers.  Because of her name, accent, and appearance (caramel skin and eyes, straight-ish brown hair with highlights), I just assumed she was Hispanic and didn’t think much of it.  But then one day, she was holding my daughter and fluently speaking German to her!  Not Spanish…German.  I was so surprised that it took me a second to realize that my husband, who also speaks German and not Spanish, was chatting with her in not-Spanish.

Not Spanish.

I couldn’t believe it.  I found out over drinks yesterday that her mother is white American and her dad is Sudanese, and they raised their family in Germany.

She’s German.

Now who’s eating humble, misconception pie…. 🙂
