So, I paint my nails pretty regularly these days. I also work as a barista/cashier pretty regularly these days. A few weeks back, I had a customer come in, a fairly typical, sheltered, suburban soccer mom, and she ordered a latte from me. She saw my brightly colored nails and said, “Wow, you’re so brave! My son asked me about painting his nails, and if it’s okay for boys to do that. Now I’ll tell him there’s a cool guy who does it too!” It was a nice moment, very cute.
Then, last week, she came in again, and said, “Hey, I’m so glad you’re here! I want you to meet someone!” She then brings her son forward, and says, “Okay sweetie, show him what you did!” And he throws his hands up, showing off his bright, sparkling blue nails. He shows them off, and I show mine off to him. He smiles. We fist bump.
Guys, I’ve only wanted to cry once at work before, and that was when someone ordered a large dry soy cappuccino on ice.
This time, though. This was a good cry.
i was gonna go for a shower but instead i’ve sat here for like half an hour on tumblr god dammit
It’s okay. I was supposed to clean my apartment yesterday and today but all I’ve done is read fic and tumblr. And I have to pack for my flight tonight.
Birthday Mom: I want BLACK Barbie. Not Barbie’s black friend, BLACK BARBIE.
Boss: Done and done.
And every child at that party believed I was the real Barbie. Not Barbie’s black friend, The Barbie. Because black girls can be the star of a franchise too.
How I wish you were around when I was little.
My cheeks are wet and there’s a hot lump in my throat.
why is it raining on my face
I never post on Tumblr, so I’m hoping my few followers can help me get this word out by reblogging…
I work for a hotel that hosts a major US con every year. I love anime and I go to cons myself, but I am going to be blunt about some of the problems we have and how we deal…
my weakness for michael ealy is being exploited
