I once came second in a Jason Donovan singalike competition wearing a bald cap, As if things weren't bad enough, I won an online Karaoke competition singing I will always love you by Whitney Houston.

I hang my head....

I can morph into an Hispanic identity, in the eyes of other shoppers, by saying two words in Spanish to the Hispanic cashier, with the correct trilling of the "r."

So few NYC Caucasians seem to take a language these days in school, beyond perhaps one year, few can mimic the correct accent. Skipping a grade in Junior High School, I took Spanish at age 12, and was young enough to learn the correct pronounciation. Hispanics know I'm not authentic, but the Caucasians don't know, since many live in a world reminiscent of Ralph Kramden, in my opinion.

and this benefits you how? According to the left you are white and thus privileged, why would you ever pretend to slum it?

I have nothing against Hispanics. They often have been nicer to me than Caucasians. Anyway, morphing into another identity can be a good way to keep an annoying Caucasian "ethnic" fron engaging me in some boring/annoying "male bonding" conversation. How you doin'?

Why do you correlate Hispanics with "slumming"? Why do you think the "left" only considers me white? I'm asking two questions, since you are so curious about my reply to the thread's question.

Your curiosity is not part of the thread's question.

Its relevant to your post of:

Do u agree ?


Of course, if u prefer that we not know,
then I respect that.

It's not that I prefer you to not know. I prefer you to not be intrusive, in my opinion, about that which is beyond my response to the thread's original question. It has to do with my perception of inappropriate curiosity, considering I never ask you anything about yourself. I learned well the teaching of the basic training sergeant to M.Y.O.B., to get through the next four years with the least friction amongst recruits. It is really great wisdom, and might even reflect a mature approach to the world, considering I am not a celebrity that one should show interest in.

OK. In that case, I withdraw the question and substitute an apology.

@Smileyrius,
HA. It is beyond the Stashu of limitations so I can now tell you that my field partners (and subsequent friends) and I WON a barroom singing contest by singing
"THE BIRD"
We practiced all the way in from Maseru (Lesotho) in a Rover singing and practicing the unique phraseology of this popular song for the deranged

We drove for about two days to Capetown and were met by bunches of folks who were singing folks songs .

@izzythepush,
At the age of about fourteen (which would have been 1960) I was in a public speaking class. There was some sort of event at a school PTA event. I gave a short speech entitled "The Management of News."
Why anyone thought that that would be an appropriate topic is beyond me. Perhaps some teacher was encouraging me to be interested in current events.
Anyway, due to the onset of puberty and a missing tooth, the audience thought they heard...
The Management of Nudes

That happened to a professional TV newsman too.
I saw that among some Bloopers on TV.

@realjohnboy,
You beat me, Johnboy. Mine speech was only funny to me.. some time later.

I was a frightened girl giving a speech (don't remember what about) that I had worried myself sick over for weeks - the speaking, not the text. I was saved by the fire drill bell. Class left the building, and I didn't get all frightened again once we got back.

That doesn't count though re this thread, as I've told that before here, somewhere.
