Conversation with my daughter at Trader Joe’s

D: Aba, can we get Sushi (meaning california rolls with fake crab meat) for my lunch tomorrow?

A: D, we’ve talked about this – you’re not going to have Sushi with fish in it at school because of the perception [that it is real crab meat]. The only sushi you can get is the veggie roll that doesn’t have any fish in it.

D: But Aba, I go to school with gefilte fish and that’s ok!

A: But the fish in this sushi looks like treif. Remember, its the perception.

D: [thinks for a moment] Ok, then what sushi doesn’t have any perception in it?

In the midst of laughing out loud in the store, I asked Dahvi if she knew what ‘perception’ meant and with a sheepish grin, she said ‘No….’.
