Using Good For Evil - A Morality Play

So I'm sitting in Mass yesterday and the Deacon is giving his sermon. He's says . ."blah, blah, blah. . . .we often distinguish people based on the size, shape, race. . . .well, not race because we are all the same race. . .the human race. . . blah, blah, blah. . .

My eyes did that involuntary widening when a light goes on in your head. My daughter notices and says "What?" My reply . . "Later!"

So I explain to her that I thought that the sermon was very poignant (not pungent). However, from now on, every application or questionnaire that I receive will be filled out Race: Human.

Agreed. From now on I'm checking the "H" box.

I always put "Middle Eastern". They say that civilization started in Mesopotamia, so I've got to have some lineage back there.
