I am on my lunch "break" and one of my students is in here with me (a 1st grader..) and he asked me, after seeing me eat an apple, "Don't you eat any food?" So, I pointed to the orange I was peeling and told him that it is a food. He told me "Naaa, that's a vegetable." Now he won't stop asking me for more of my orange. He has eaten about half already. This is a strange culture where food isn't "food."
