Today I went to the poetry workshop at school. I am usually always the only white kid there, though today there was one other white boy one from some other school, I forget which one. Anyway the best part of the whole day was when I overhead piece of a conversation three kids were having. A girl seemed to be explaining to a boy what St. Patricks Day is.
"I don't fucking know! Basically I think it's when a bunch of white people wear green shirts and drink a lot and sometimes girls dress skanky."
"Yeah and that bright green is the WORST color on human skin..."
"That's because it is the color of some four leafed clover dummy."
"Yeah well, they should die the clover red or something."
It was the perfect snippet of conversation and it made my day.
