seminga (white girl)

11 Jul

i was in the maternity ward the other day, examining a baby, when a young man (who is a nurse) greeted me.  i smiled, and replied to his greeting, then continued to examine the little one.

a couple minutes later, he looked over to me again, as he prepared a bath for one of the newborns.

“how do you bathe?” he asked.

“you mean, how do i bathe the babies?” i responded.

“no, i mean, how do you bathe yourself?”

“well, i shower usually.”

“with soap? with a big fluffy sponge?” he questioned.

“yes, with soap.  i just rub it on,” i replied, quite confused at where this conversation was going.

“well, then… how do you get your skin so white?”

priceless.
