Third culture conversations that STILL blow my mind.
Josiah: Mom I am SO excited about going to Amewica (that's how he pronounces it) tomorrow.
Me: Me too, buddy. What food are you most looking forward to eating? (Cause you know, with my food issues and all, it seems like a reasonable question.)
Josiah: (Shrugs his shoulders) I don't know, what do they have?
Me: What do they have? (Incredulously) What do they have??? Everything. They have everything. Like you can find whatever you want to eat there.
Josiah: Like what?
Me: Do you remember getting cheeseburgers at McDonalds?
Josiah: Sort of.
Me: How about Chicken Nuggets?
Josiah: What's that?
Me: What are Chicken Nuggets? Are you serious? Josiah, they are like little chunks of meat that they bread and fry.
Josiah: Oh I know! Like the tassot (fried beef) at the beach. They are made of cow, right?
Me: No. Chicken. That's why they are called CHICKEN Nuggets.
Josiah: Oh. Then no. I don't remember them.
How could this be my son?
Time to brush off the RULES before we land on US soil tomorrow...
