China China Bo Bina

The Boy has his first project to do for school. He has to pick a country and then research what people in that country do for Christmas or a similar holiday. Then he has to compare and contrast that country's Christmas customs with those in the United States. Several countries were listed on a "don't do" list because those countries are going to be studied in class.

Last week we had a lengthy discussion (read: argument) about why he couldn't choose the U.S. even though it wasn't on the "don't do" list. He was quite determined. Over the next few days I made some suggestions, including Australia and Canada, where I know a few people and could get information via email. He finally chose China and today we started researching it. After I put him in bed tonight, I asked him this question:

Me: How did you choose China?

The Boy [with a big smile]: I chose it because it sounds like angina. Chest pain.

[We both laughed.]

Me: How do you know what angina is?

The Boy: iCarly.

Me: Ah. 

I guess I should consider myself lucky that it's ANGINA that he's rhyming it with.

I'm sure he's going to get an A.
