The following conversation took place between me and a complete stranger at an event we attended...
Scene: I'm coming back from the rest room with Sabrina in my arms as I had just changed her diaper. Enter an early 30's looking pretty blond white girl. She's wearing that dopey clueless look Sarah Palin gets when someone asks her a gotcha question like "How are you?".
Dopey Looking White Lady: Oh I just wanted to tell you I've been watching your daughter play and she's just adorable!
Fabulous Me: Oh, well thank you. She's having fun.
DLWL: So I wanted to ask, where did you get her?
Me: (Irritated with the personal and inappropriate question from a perfect stranger.) Well, she was born in Los Angeles, where we adopted her.
DLWL: Oh maybe I should check out California.
Me: I'm sorry?
DLWL: Well I've been trying to get myself a black baby for some time now.
Me: (Holding back from saying something guaranteed to make her cry.) Yeah um, well, good luck with that.
