I remember one of the little kids who hung around my house watching me one evening as I made myself a plate of spaghetti. You white people have such a variety of foods, he told me. All I ever have to eat is millet pate.
Now look, I told him. Are you telling me that if you could eat whatever you wanted, you would never eat pate?
Oh, maybe every once in a while. he replied. But every day, lunch and dinner? What misfortune!
