Free German food is better than no free food at all...?

It suddenly occurs to me that while I took advanced math classes until 8th grade, repeated Algebra instead of taking Geometry at the high school, and began the slippery slope to math-hatred, I could have done the same with French.

In 9th gradem I had the choice between French 2 and French 2AC (accelerated). Having no self-confidence, I signed up for French 2 and got bored and frustrated with the French level of my classmates. Thankfully I had friends in 2AC who persuaded me to move up. If I had stayed in French 2, I imagine I would have gotten bored and quit and I wouldn't be where I am today.

Of course, Where I Am Today is trapped in the Frankfurt-Main departures lounge, eating a sausage-and-cheese sandwich on dry bread. So maybe that wouldn't be a bad thing.
