Ok this happened a little while ago but I'll write about it now cause I thought about it today..
A while ago I was in a chinese restaurant with my family and my nephews and we're sitting there eating spare ribs and the older one said, 'Uncle Tah! That guy looks just like you!' I look over and nephew is referring to this black guy sitting a couple tables away. He had glasses and was bald like me. I said, 'Oh yeah?' Nephew was like, 'Yeah he looks just like you, Uncle Tah!... but different.' I was like, 'Different how?' And nephew squinted at this guy and said, 'His glasses are different.' I said, 'Yeah our glasses are different. Anything else?' I was asking really based out of curiosity. Nephew stared at him a bit more then turned to me and said, 'I think you have more hair.'
I was amazed. Nephew literally couldn't see the color difference. I thought that was so coolio! Not sure if he's color blind or what but I thought it was coolio that he just was looking at everything but skin color. Twas weird because you'd think that was a given or whatever. But to kids a bald black guy with glasses and a bald white guy with glasses look the same. That's coolio. Oh well. This whole story is probably too touchy feely raced up but whatever. I thought it was a cool story and it's late at night and I'll tell you more stories later in the week.
Hey! Wanna see some pictures?
I was walking around in the village tonite in the rain and I walked by a 9/11 memorial. Alot of people sent in 'tiles' in memory of 9/11 and they were hung on a fence.
Here's what it looked like:
Most of the tiles were along these lines...
But some of em were sorta different so I took some pictures of some of the different ones thrown into the mix.
Here they are:
Pirate and Fish and Sun
Freedom A-bomb Tree
Superheroes. I recognize the Flash. The rest..? maybe a hawkman batman situation?
Cedar Rapids biz checking in.
Acid Hippie Alien
Outback steak house remembers 9-11.
Good attitude tile from Megan. Sorta.
Peace Wave Cool ...Cat?
Japanese Proverb. I guess it makes sense.
With crazy crab bug!
Ok. So that's that?
I took this one on the way back. It was dark out.
ok that's that with that!
