I just finished reading Mennonite in a Little Black Dress. I for the most part I liked it. I thought it was witty, amusing, and had some wisdom as well. I also found it very strange to have my culture talked about and not always in the most faltering way.
I learned an important lesson after doing this piece: check to make sure the eyes are right. While I have dubbed this piece "making zwieback" my family has dubbed it the "crazy eyes piece" or the "just plain creepy piece". So lesson learned and I will be careful not to make that mistake again!
