My dad is 100% Italian, but has never been to Italy. My mom is 50% Italian and 50% Irish, but has never visited either country. This makes me a mix of 75% Italian and 25% Irish. While these are the statistics, I am Italian in the sense that I enjoy eating pasta and meatballs, but not much beyond that. I am Irish in the sense that I enjoy corn beef on St. Patrick’s Day, but not much beyond that either. This really shows that numbers don’t really mean anything sometimes.
