Only recently have I begun to come to terms with my alabaster glow. Every now and then, though, I hear a remark about the lack of pigment in my natural skin tone that ricochets through my head for ages. A few winners will probably stick with me for as long as I live:
“Has your back ever seen a photon of sunlight?”
(commenting on my legs)
“Are you wearing stocki – oh, wait, that’s your natural skin tone. Nevermind . . . ” ::hurries away::
(Prior to my first performance with the RLJ Formation & Showdance Team. Russell is discussing logistics with us.)
“And ladies, you’ll probably want to start tanning. I don’t want to see any pasty legs.” ::turns to me:: “Especially YOU, Whitey!”
None. I am totally focused on my blog.
