“I think my mom told me once that there is some French on her side of the family.”

“Hmm…mine, too.”

“Really? You’ve got French ancestors?”

“Uh, duh”

“Well, I know your family is French-Canadian, but that’s different from French.”

“Not back then, it wasn’t.”

“Then why do you specify French-Canadian instead of just saying French?”

“Because they came to the US from Canada.”

“My great-great-great grandmother came to the US through Canada, but we don’t call ourselves Scotch-Canadian.”

“Yeah, but that’s because French-Canadian is different from French.”

“But you just said that it wasn’t back then.”

“It wasn’t.”

“Then why do you distinguish that your ancestors were French-Canadian?”

“Because they came down to the US from Canada.”

and on, and on, and on…
