While waiting outside my office building for my friend TUS to show up for a lunch date, my co-worker AT and I had the following conversation:
AT: Let me try to guess which guy on the street is your friend. Give me some hints.
HT: Ok. He went to an elite liberal arts college.
HT: Double major in Physics and English Lit.
HT: Moved to London, got married to a lovely woman of South Asian descent.
AT: Yup, white.
HT: He's now in a grad program in Performance Studies.
AT: Make that 5'11.
AT then had to head off to his own lunch, leaving me to wait for TUS for a few more minutes. When I saw him finally rounding the corner, in his 5'11, white, liberal arts college-educated frame, I let out a giggle.
