Hopeless Student

“If you want a cat, I’ll buy you a cat,” I told Klara. “I don’t know much about cats but I have figured out they aren’t food. I can learn more.”

“You know, mommy,” she said in a voice I reserve for particularly hopeless students, “I think I’m OK with a toy cat instead.”

  1. You have figured out they aren’t food?

    This reminds me of a joke my husband used to make about Chinese food when we first started dating (early 1990’s). I would get chicken-fried rice and as soon as I would take a bite, he would say, “How do you like your cat?” Somewhere he heard Chinese people used cats to make their food. I never thought it was a funny joke. And I always wondered if it was true.
