I don't know why I thought about this yesterday.
Probably because I was singing. I don't sing. Well. I know it and therefore I don't torture people with it. There are a couple songs out there that I can hold my own on. One of them is "Contagioius" by my buddy Garen/Granian/Kill The Alarm.
So anywho, back when I was working in Mexico, I was walking from my room over to the bar in what I thought was solitude. I'm belting this one out like there's no tomorrow.
Sidebar: First time I met Garen, a bunch of us were sitting around a room, drinking some beers and he was playing his geet-tar. It's all well and good and I wasn't paying attention and I was singing along to whatever he was playing. All of a sudden, he just stopped playing and received some questioning looks. He said he wanted to hear me sing. Um, how bouts no?
Right, so turns out I wasn't alone and some of my co-workers had snuck up behind me. The conversation went like this:
Mexican Co-Worker 1: Hey Sunshine, I didn't know you could sing.
Me: I can't.
MCW1: Sure you can, I just heard you.
Mexican Co-Worker 2 to MCW1: Todos los chocolates pueden cantar.*
Me: Uggghhnnnmm. Bye guys.
Only because I hold these two people close did I not kill them. And more because I know that they didn't mean anything by it. Honestly, I don't think they know what racism is, but I can look back at it and laugh. But really, we can't all sing.
*Translation: All the chocolates can sing.
