Everytime myimmigrantparents come back from the motherland, their suitcases are filled with 5000 boxes of green tea, 400 kg of ginseing, pirated DVD’s , and even pirated SAT prep books……..Somehow, they manage to get everything through customs.
Upon returning from the grocery store, I put the bags on the ground to get my house keys out. Mom: Don’t put the food on the floor! Dirty! Me: They are in PLASTICBAGS! Mom: Germs can get through. Me: No, they really can’t. Mom: Still. Dirty.
