To Take A Good Hard Look Around And Be In The Minority

The title of this post was taken from the song Southern Comfort Zone by Brad Paisley.



Here is a picture of John and I really...I'm just trying to emphasize what John looks like. Here is a conversation he had with someone I introduced him to.

Other person to John: "So, what country are you from?"

"I was born in Colorado. My great grandparents came from Japan but I guess I'm watered down enough that I don't really look Asian."

I couldn't contain my laughter, but the other person was serious.

"You're American?!"

"Yea."

"Man, you speak good English."

    Not sure it gets any funnier than this. John's last name is Mullineaux which is French however he is Asian and I've been asked if he's Mexican. I can't help but laugh!

I've seen several pictures of him and it never occurred to me that he wasn't just one more of us from this area. Now that I know he's a "fur'ner," I'll be sure and ask to see his green card when I meet him! LOL!

BTW, I'm trying to make myself blog every day too, whether I have something to say or not. I think I'll be glad I did.

lol, it was pretty funny.

I have turned reading your blog into part of my daily routine. You are quite the gifted writer. I'd love to share the link to your blog on mine sometime. Let me know.
