Take 2 slices of toast, some butter, one cat...

My helper Juliet's English is a bit shaky. When she first started working for me, I used to write down a shopping list for her so she could ask people in the "market" (supermarket) what it was.

One morning I was rushing so I just told her she had to get cat sand for the litter box. She did look at me like she understood.

The morning after she said:

"Marie, so sorry. They don't have CAT SANDWICH in the market"

I'm not sure what surprised me more, that they didn't have it (being China after all) or that she didn't take it upon herself to make one.
