Oh Joy

In Shenyang, the street cleaning truck plays music as it goes up and down the roads.  Like an ice cream truck.  When we first moved here, it was always played “Happy Birthday”.  Last week, I was sitting outside with Joy, the 7-year old girl I tutor, and we heard the music coming.  The truck was playing “It’s a Small World”.  I sang it to her, and it went a little something like this.

It’s a small world after all.

It’s a small world after all.

It’s a small world after all.

It’s a small, small world.

She sang the last line with me, and then she said, “But China is a big, big world.”

From the mouths of babes…  I love that girl.
