Any other 甝’s out there?
I heard a new term last night as we were at the dining room table. There was a discussion of Chinese and reading and keeping up over the summer and my middle schooler said of one of her classmate’s moms, “Oh, she’s a white tiger.”
“White tiger?” I asked.
“That’s a white parent who’s a tiger mom,” she said, as if I should have known the answer.
I asked if I was a white tiger and there was a looooong pause.
I’m thinking we need t-shirts!
FYI, 甝 is the word for white tiger, it’s pronounced hán.
So anyone else running into this term among students?
And, more importantly, how do you feel about it?
