Maybe it was excess build-up or some allergic reaction affecting my hearing but I swear I heard a guest respond to my “how are you doing today?” with this:

“Well, I’m white, so I’m great.”

Initial reactions:

  1. I need to Q-tip more often.
  2. I’m only half white. Does that mean I’m merely half great? or half bad?
  3. Is that distinction anything like the “glass half full” scenario?
  4. I should blog about this.
  5. What a sad malady-irony: a waxy blockage affecting comprehension and a consuming ignorance affecting compassion.
  6. Do I really have to wait on David Duke over here?
  7. Sometimes my job sucks.
