This seemed really funny at the time.
Whitney is a 15 year old Black girl who stands at 5 foot nothing. You can tell when she's in the room. She's got what you call command presence.
Today she reared up, cocked her head, and said:
"Mr. Gray I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but you are very unattractive. Plus you're not funny and nobody likes you so quit trying."
I had to stifle myself. It was just the way she said it, like she was Moses bringing forth the First Commandment.
"Thank you for sharing Whitney."
"You don't care that you're so ugly and don't nobody like you?"
"Whitney if I spent my whole life worrying about how ugly I was or if anybody liked me or not I'd never get anything else done."
That finally shut her up but 5 minutes later, I was laughing. Oh God I can still see it, the body posture, the inflection in her voice, and the matter of fact tone.
They crack me up sometimes.
