family ties

awhile back, some of my coworkers and i were chatting over lunch. somehow, the conversation got around to what our boyfriends/husbands/wives/girlfriends/significant others did, where they were from, and how often did we visit each other families. when the conversation got to me, i said finance, grew up in socal, and that as todd's mom now lives in the caribbean (i explained where that is: between martinique and guadalupe, etc.), we only visit about every one or two years. one woman looked at me real intently, sort of squinting her eyes and tilting her head, and then said, "becca, i never knew that about you. not that there's anything wrong with it and all." um, ok. i'm confused. "huh?" "yeah," she replied, "i never knew you were into black guys."

guess i had some explaining to do...
