The eleven year old asked me, "What is a gherkin?" I told him it is a pickle. He was playing a flash game on the web called No One Likes Gherkin.
Then today he told me that he has a new girlfriend on this kids' game he plays. He said, "She's from Israel. She is learning to speak English. So I told her what a 'gherkin' is."
Somewhere in Israel is a confused young girl.
