Mixed Feelings

by Marinka on May 30, 2010

If you walk past your papa’s laptop and see an email addressed to him with a subject line that reads Young Black Male Available, calm down long enough to consider that your father is not into plantation playacting and that the email was in fact sent by the breeder that your parents bought their Doberman from.

However, when you run over to tell papa about this hilarious incident and laugh about how funny it would have been if papa were to be cruising for young black men on the internet, it will be oddly non-reassuring when he tells you, “no, I like young white females.”

I just snorted, from laughing, for the first time in my life. You bring out the classy in me.

Just to clarify – your dad is not dating a doberman… right? I’m relieved.

Looking at papa’s mail? When did the kidsrinka and husbandrinka stop being good blog fodder? How low can you go?

That definitely would have given me pause. As the pink crocs already opened up that particular can of worms…

Hilarious!! It’s like the time my dad said: “You are a really good mom. We’re kinda surprised because we think of you as so selfish.” Mixed feelings indeed.

Yeah, if my husband said he liked ‘any color’ young females….I would not see the humor in it. Or males, as a matter of fact.
He better just stick to cats.
