I Don't Speak American

I had always assumed that the Danish language was the basis of reality, and that all languages worked in the same manner as Danish. I remember my first day in English class chanting “I am / You are / He, She, It is / We are / You are / They are,” not knowing what in the world I was doing or why. I thought for a while that the chant was a traditional British children’s song.
