What Members of an Increasingly Petulant Host Family Say to Foreign-Exchange Student Maloka Bibihou. BY ANDREW KIRALY

“Go ahead, but you’ll be there quite a while. Like I said, DVDs don’t rewind.”

“There. See? Celebrities don’t bleed perfume. I hope you’re happy now.”

“If you want to get technical about it, I suppose you can eat that.”

“For the millionth time, it’s just a song, not an ‘iSong.'”

“I and the rest of the bowling league would appreciate it if you saved your tribal war dance for home.”

“Well, that’s how we do it in America. Dogs just wear little outfits sometimes.”
