“So, like what are you?”
I wish I could count how many times I have been asked this question. I have come up with an arsenal of answers including:
“A nice mix of Tituss Andromedon and Chrissy Teigen, with a dash of Carrie Fischer”
“A nursing student who occasionally cries in public while studying without even noticing”
None of these answers suffice and the follow up question is about my race, with which I answer “I’m mixed. White and black, but a little bit of everything else too”.
