We Delivery

I went to get Chinese food the other day. I couldn’t help but notice that all of the business cards and the sign in the window had their new slogan, “We Delivery.”…um…people?…What printer did these people go to who would say, “We delivery? Okay. Sounds right to me! That’ll be $500 dollar.” Come on! Possibly we should have a little more compassion for minorities?...or at the very least, make a rule that we won't screw over people who make tasty food.

America is quite a melting pot of political incorrectness: One of my friends is having a baby. She is an African American woman and when she went to the Doctor the other day, they gave her a book about what to expect while she’s pregnant. She flipped to the back and said, “look! It even gives you menu ideas.” I looked as she flipped through…Across the top of the page of the Southern Fried Chicken recipe, it said, “African-American food.” The next page was a recipe for Arroz con Pollo…across the top of that page it said, “Latino.” The last recipe was for vegetable fried rice with the caption, “Asian.”…She said that she looked at the nurse and then at a white girl who was carrying the same book and asked, “What is she supposed to eat?”

I’m embarrassed to be a "cream colored person" in this world sometimes! It’s so hard to break free of stereotypes! Luckily I have my own category: Thirty Something Single Girl!- Notes on what to eat: Only eat on Saturdays between the hours of 5-7pm. It’s the best way to maintain your figure and you can eat whatever you want- as long as it’s only during those two hours a week! That way you aren’t restricting yourself and you can really enjoy life!
