While Casey was at dance today, Jack and I had a few minutes alone together in the car. I guess we were in between movies because he was very chatty…
Jack: Mommy, Chinese Skittles have a very different package from regular ones.
Me: What? Where did you get Chinese Skittles?
(I’m very confused…I’m wondering if regular skittles say Made in China on them or something.)
Jack: At school.
Me: Where did they come from? Did Mrs. S bring them into class?
Jack: No, A brought them in.
Me: Does she have Chinese family? Where did she get them?
Jack: I don’t know. I guess she got them from her family. But the bag is very different. The only thing Mrs. S could read on it was Skittles.
Me: Did you try one? Are they the same?
Jack: They are. Even the S is the same on them.
And there you have it. The only thing different is the bag. But it’s very exciting to a 1st grader. And a little confusing for the 1st grader’s mother but I feel a little more cultured after all that.
