Rainey: In this picture I’m in first grade. I eat lunch at my desk every day. We’re not allowed to talk when we eat, because our teachers say that helps prevent choking. The unfair thing is that the teachers get the better food. There’s 27 plates and 27 kids. If you drop a plate you need to go to the teachers’ lounge and get some of their food. My classmate dropped once, and I had to go get him some teachers’ food. It was way more better than our food! They also get more food!
Mom: The Chinese are very concerned about physical safety! So they institute all sorts of rules to make sure their kids are healthy and safe. That’s where you get the no talking rule. Also,┬áDon’t go down the slide headfirst! Stay away from bodies of water! Rest after you exercise!
