Ok so there was a bday party at my house yesterday for me & a friend.
Well her husband who is bit of an ass (yes she knows this & they've separated twice) was there & he isn't from the states & has dark olive skin.
Anyway, I'm rather white & got sunburn over the week & my arms are peeling. I HATE it & if it wasn't so warm I'd wear long sleeves. I feel like a snake shedding skin, lol.
Well he came over & says "I see your white is coming out" and poked at my skin. I just said "yup tends to happen when you get sunburn." To which he said "so glad I'm not white & have ugly sensitive skin like that." (mind you his wife is whiter than I am) I just looked at him & said "I'm proud of being white, my skin color is a part of me & I embrace it flakiness & all." He asked "do you have a flag saying that too?" I told him "yup it is called my Polish flag." He said "same thing" and walked off.
WTH, be pissy but if your proud of your dark olive skin I'm going to be proud of my white freckled sunburned skin as well!
