    It’s broth, of course. No one orders “chicken juice.” πŸ˜‰

    Why does that song remind me of Katie Perry for some reason? I really like her voice. Anyway, hey, Alica, can you tell me, how do I get to the site or whatever to listen to the other songs that are entered into the 2012 Eurovision Contest?
    Thanks.

    Yep. broth it is. I LOL’d at Julie’s “chicken juice”. πŸ™‚

    Alica, I’d have to go with broth because it’s closely related to soup. πŸ™‚

    You may not like what I have to say, but I have to say, in all honesty, I just shuddered at your question, “What are they teaching in schools these days?”

    I’m a firm believer that parents and caregivers are children’s primary teachers. Likely, your work kids haven’t had good role models and effective communication with adults in their home environment. Should teachers point out the difference between juice and broth? Certainly, if it comes up in conversation or when reading or whenever. Should parents or caregivers point out the difference if it comes up in the course of a day? I’d also say yes. After all, it takes a village to raise a child…

    I don’t mean to take away from all your hard work on behalf of these needy children, Alica, and I’m not in your shoes. God bless your patience and unending energy for them and your support of your own family. I realize there may be a valid reason why you didn’t correct their mistake. If so, let me have it.

      Honestly I just mean it in a totally off hand slang kind of way. I don’t expect school to teach them the difference between broth and juice, and I did explain it- although they ignored me and kept calling it juice *shudders*
      I home schooled my kids for years and even then I would see them doing something silly or not know something and I’d say “what are they teaching in schools these days’ just as a why don’t they know this- phrase and never thought anything of it.
      This just reminds me how powerful words are and that what means nothing to be can spark passion in someone else. I am sorry if I offended you and I’ll try and remember to shove this phrase to the back of my mind. πŸ™‚

    Its definitely broth. I remember once my mother calling it juice and I had the same reaction. I just looked at her and said “chicken juice? its broth!”
