“Mommy, Mommy!” exclaims Klara. “I have amazing news! Letters c and k make the same noise!”
The priest’s wife had her birthday today. Klara counted 7 candles on the birthday cake.

There’s this children’s book called “Everybody Is Cooking Rice.” At first, it’s cute. A girl visits every house on her street and sees that everybody is making a rice dish for dinner.
“The Diazes are from Mexico. They came here a year ago. They are cooking rice!
“The Bahns are from Vietnam. They came here 3 months ago. They are cooking rice!”

By the end of the book, you fully expect to find a Trump campaign sticker attached to the last page asking people to donate money if they don’t want to be replaced.
