So, as the temperatures here have gotten up in the 70's a few times lately, I figured it was going to be time to break out the capris soon. Looking down at my legs, I figured I better a) shave them, and b) get some tan on them, unless my goal is to frighten small children when I show these bad boys in public for the first time.
To that end, I initiated the following conversation with one of the moms at my kids school ...
Me: "You sure have a nice tan, and already look good in your summer clothes."
Her: "Thank you."
Me: "Do you have a local tanning salon that you use?"
Her: "No, I don't tan."
Me: "Really? Because you have a beautiful tan."
Her: (pause) "You know I'm half black, don't you?"
