Another night of quality dinner convo with my mom.

mom: so what is your boss?

me: what do you mean?

mom: like, where’s he from?

me: oh, he’s south american.

mom: oh ok, so he’s mexican.

me: um, no mexico is still in north america.

mom: oh, whoops, i meant so he’s african.

me: uh…. no, that would be the continent of africa.

mom: so what the hell is he?? is he white?

me: what?? no, he’s south american, that’s what he is!

mom: what colour is his skin?

me: it’s brown

mom: why didn’t you just say so! he’s indian.

me: …………………………… yes.
