Lauren: Mom, you know what I’ve been thinking about lately?

Me: I can’t even begin to imagine.

Lauren: I’ve been thinking about people from China who come here to visit America.

Me: *?*

Lauren:  Do you think if they buy a souvenir in America and then get home to China and turn their souvenir over and see “Made in China” that they are mad?  Cause I think I’d be really mad if I was Chinese and I thought I was getting an American souvenir and then found out it was from my own country, you know?

Me: *speechless*
