Cultural Differences

A college student from Bulgaria was attending the local university.  He came to give a lesson to the elementary students. After a slide show, he showed various objects from his homeland.  Next, he proceeded to demonstrate a dance that is performed at weddings.  He explained that the handkerchief used in the dance is sewn by the man’s bride.

Two hands shot up from the crowd of American children.

“What if she can’t sew?” one asked in all sincerity.

“What if the man isn’t married?” asked a child of a single parent.

“Welcome to America,” I thought.
