On exercise, ethnicity, and life.

<During my 9:30 jog this morning, I made it to the soccer fields for cool down. About 30 seconds later, I felt someone grab my elbow.>
“Miss, you didn’t hear us?”
<Boy and girl student from my class last year stand there, panting.>
“I was wearing headphones.”
“Oh.”
“You recognized me from way over there?”
“Well, yeah, I mean, how many white ladies have a back tattoo and a thigh tattoo and wear purple kicks?”
“Point.”
“So, remember when you said you’re not in shape?”
“I”m not. See how hard I’m breathing?”
“Miss, you know how they say girls don’t sweat, they glisten?”
“Yes.”
“I don’t think you’re glistening, I think you’re sweating.”
<Girl-child smacks him on the back of his head.>
“Rude!”
“You’re rude! Miss, how I find someone who won’t hit me on the head to date?”
“Start dating white girls.”
“But Miss, you hit your guy friends on the back of the head, you told us so.”
“See? I told you she wasn’t white. Just really pale.”
