wednesday april 14

today i stood outside a coffee time for about 15 minutes with a friend, waiting for one of his friends' moms to meet him to pass along a video camera. not knowing what she looked like, both of us scoured the middle-aged women that passed us by over the course of those 15 minutes, wondering if any given one could be the woman we were waiting for. when she finally arrived, i realized that all the women i'd been scoping out for the duration of our wait had been foreign, even though she was white and there had been no reason to assume otherwise.
