name tags, price tags, book tags, and now this...

a good way to return to active blogging. i have been double-tagged by em. the second tag says i have to write a story in 55 words. so here is my attempt.


My daughter is coming, with her AMERICAN boyfriend. This is the first time we will be seeing him. We are all very excited.

There she is! But…

They walked together towards the dumbstruck lady. His gentle eyes belied his rugged physique. His flawless ebon skin glowed in the lamplight.

He bent and touched her feet.

    Duh? It has a double edge, in the racist sense. Not to ruin your moment of glorious storywriting, but somehow, I think 'judge a man by his actions and not color'...in an "absolute" sense, is best...just like, making reservations for SC/ST's highlights the problem only.
    Nice punch anyways:)
