    I had no idea that chinese potstickers dumplings had an odor that was offensive to non-Chinese. I stopped bringing them as "bag" lunch.

    When I was in Junior High (back in Queens, N.Y.) the kids were about 85% black, 10% Puerto Rican and the rest a mix that included us/me. I loved and would sometimes eat kippered herring (American style in those wind-down cans) toast sandwiches for lunch. When I'd return to school, the black kids would give me hell for stinking of the herring. I never even considered taking a kippered herring sandwich to Junior High. Some people just don't know something good when they smell it.

    I suppose, in retrospect, that I could have brushed my teeth real well and avoided the grief.
