"Usually they’re not pretty, but family histories are so fascinating. My great grandfather was a POW during WWII. He was in the French army, he was 6 feet tall, and he left the Nazi camp 92 pounds. My family has some terrible histories with stepmothers, just some straight-up, Cinderella 101. And my grandfather hated his stepmother so much, he applied for a Visa in Brazil and a Visa in Canada and took the first one he got, and that’s how he met my grandmother in Canada. My grandmother actually left Canada as a teenager and went to Paris by herself to learn how to become a pianist, and met my grandfather when she came back. She’s like the matriarch of the family. And somehow I’m related to a noble peace prize winner, somehow. But my grandmother, yeah, she’s a total badass. She broke her hip a couple of years ago and the only medication she took was Advil."
