Me, a foreigner?

One day, to my great surprise, she asked me to marry her.
'No,' I replied, I cannot marry you. My mother does not want
me to marry a foreigner.'
She looked surprised and replied, 'Me, a foreigner? What a
funny thing to say. I 'm English. You are the foreigner! And your mother is a foreigner, too!'


How to be an alien. George Mikes, 1946.
