Taking a break to enjoy some of this lovely weather we’re having today and had a chance to enjoy the following:
Two women walking in opposite directions cross paths. One stops the other in her tracks.
Young Woman 1: Wow, that’s a great tan! Were you on vacation, or use a salon?
Young Woman 2: Um… I’m black.
Young Woman 1: You totally are! So, was it like, Jamaica or something?
Young Woman 2: (Looks at Young Woman 1 with an expression that clearly screams “ARE YOU EFFING STUPID!” before stepping around her and keeps walking.)
Young Woman 1 (sees me trying not to giggle): What?
I turned and walked, away shaking my head. I swear, sometimes I love my city, for no other reasons than random moments just like this.
