It really wasn't a lesson about takeout boxes, someone (I'm sorry I forget who)
posted a lesson about responding to an exhibit they had seen where a Chinese
artist had made bronze McDonald-like takeout containers (I hope I'm close) and
they had then developed a lesson plan around that.
So then I said something about how we used to use clear plastic Chinese takeout
boxes when I had a frame/gift shop, and then somebody asked where to get them.
Some people are lucky enough to get them from local Chinese restaurants - mine
