Text Message From My Daughter
I got this text message from my daughter, sent from her babysitter's cell phone:
Mommy did u find the rushin candy behind the computer because me and [insert brother's name here] found it. And ate it.
The "rushin candy" is the candy that my mother brought over from Russia. For some reason, there is a disproportionate amount of Russian candy that features drawings of bears on the wrapper, but it does not deter anyone that I know from eating it. On the contrary, it makes us feel at one with nature, like we're supporting the environment almost.
