"wait, what do you put on your cereal?"
"non-dairy milk"
"like what?"
"soy milk, nut milk, oat milk..."
"wait...so where does regular milk come from?"
"...cows"
"so...do they...milk the nuts for your milk?"
"sigh..."

I can't stop picturing almonds with wee little udders.

Ok- I live in Berkeley, and it holds true to some stereotypes, so I have a lot of entertaining interactions in my daily life. Plus I work with 4th-7th grade music students a lot, and those kids do really say the darndest things.

But anyway, a week or two ago, I took the bus to a concert, waiting for my friends to get on a few stops later, and this guy sits next to me and starts with "Damn, you sexy!". I declined giving him my number, but he kept awkwardly talking for the whole brief ride. Highlights: "What ethnicity are you? are you german?" and him asking to roll and smoke a blunt with me, me declining, and him taking from his pocket blunt wrappers and putting them in my lap. And when he got off "So, when are we having lunch next week?" (I blogged a longer version).


When I used to go to school at Cal years ago, I got plenty of comments...
The best one was: "You look like you know how to talk to an older man!" That one made me bust out laughing.


Edited to add: Also, after reading your blog, I remembered these 15 year old-looking boys getting off the bus at University and Shattuck once... They didn't see me sitting there the whole ride, but when they got up as the bus approached their stop, they finally saw me. Then each one decided they would individually ask for my number. Once the bust stopped, they had to hurry to hop off the bus or the driver would pull away, but the last of the group turned to me and said, "Yeah, I'm a bad boy... But next week, when I'm a good boy, I'll holla at'chu. Next week, okay, baby?"

I was with the BF walking down 6th street (in SF...) We were looking at an awesome warehouse on Folsom and 7th, and decided to walk to Millennium afterward - ended up walking down crack-contaminated, but extra colorful 6th. Anyway, someone shouted at us "Those look like a couple of nickel and dime hoes... Male and female!"
I don't know if they thought we were from the east bay (ya know... 510?), or if we were just some super cheap prostitutes, but it was nevertheless strange.


Now I'm imagining that they were saying this to the little bears in your avatar, and it is cracking me up, big time!


Ah... Now I can't stop imagining them shouting that at the bears in my avatar! Thanks a lot. :)

The other day I was walking to the dumpster with my garbage. I passed a guy standing at his car nearby. When I was coming back the man says to me "I should have asked to carry your garbage for you, but I didn't."

Someone asked me if I was part Chinese the other day. That literally has to be the strangest thing that anyone has every said to me, as I am as white as they come.

(picture for reference)

I wasn't asked this question, but I was instead told I must be part-Chinese when I too am as white as they come. Literally white and freckly. I've had the lobster sunburns throughout my entire existence. I don't get some people...

Here is a photo of me for reference http://www.flickr.com/photos/55059051@N04/5163661790/ *
