Setting: Our filthy van
Cast: Me, Lightning and a slew of happy meal toys
Lightning: Momma, what does dis say? (pointing to the tiny words inscribed on the bottom of an old happy meal toy he found in the floor.)
Me: Made in China.
Lightning: Oh. Well, what does dis one say??
(pointing to another happy meal toy, which apparently procreated in the sticky floor of my van, because I can't remember the last time we actually purchased a happy meal, yet my floorboard is always FULL of plastic trinkets and junk hailed from Burger King and McDonalds)
Me: That one also says Made in China.
Lightning, (deep in thought for a moment): Momma, are we Chi-a-neese??
Me: No, baby. We're Americans.
Lightning: Den, why every-fang made fwom China??
Me: Well, they have cheaper factories and labor there. So they make it in China, and ship it to America.
Lightning, relieved, "Okay, good. 'Cause I don't speak Spanish."
