I was talking to some friends of mine the other day, and one of them mentioned that she'd met a fellow expatriate who was going through a bout of homesickness. She was so touched by his plight that she wanted to send him a care package and wondered what to put in it. The rest of us put forward some suggestions - mainly "goodies" like candy and cookies.
Suddenly, another friend announced out of the blue, "Seriously, you guys must eat a lot of garbage."
I said, "That's an interesting assumption. We're talking about a care package, not a healthy meal!"
