My husband took us out to dinner the last night, and because it was cold I draped my long black scarf over my head, then flipped the end over my shoulders. When I got out of the car at the restaurant my daughter said that I looked weird, and I should take it off. But before I did, someone walking behind me did the the "Zenna warrior princess's yell", you know the one she does with her tongue.
I can't do it, everytime I try to do that yell, it just comes out "le-le-blllth!" It's also a middle East yell.
Well right after that, I took off my scarf and looped it around my neck like normal, and pulled out my long, frizzy red hair. Then the guy behind us said "Oh, I thought that was one of those rag-heads." Which of course I'm not! Then another voice said "Shhhh!"
I never looked around, as I was busy talking to my daughter. Maybe I should have! Maybe I should have gave him a piece of my mind, about being judgmental about people! Maybe I should have, but I didn't! What happened to tolerance in this country? Did we ever have any? Or was it a casualty of 9-11 too?
