  • The first thing i learned in english when I moved to America

    Was the word "NO"

    I will say NO to everything.

    "Do you need a ride somewhere?" someone asked me

    "Non" I will say

    One day, my brother said "YES" over the phone

    and he received a Bill in the mail from The New York times

    Oh! I forgot to mention that none of us spoke or read english then...

    The funny part is that even though I speak english now

    I am still saying "No"

    To my brother
