I recently went to a benefit for a Native American family, where the intended recipient got super drunk and rambled loudly about politics and the White Man for an uncomfortably long time (let's be honest -- any amount of time would have been uncomfortable). While avoiding eye contact and trying to slither under the table, I couldn't help but wonder if this display wouldn't make people give more....
It didn't, and I spent the rest of the evening glaring at my rich, cheap "friends."

Funny how these things make you sort of hate your circle.


this is up there as one of the funniest blogs I have read. If only I was a bit more comfortable with wince out loud moments...


I was at an elementary Charter school fundraiser where the young, African American student enthusiastically introduced a billionaire guest speaker with the announcement that he wanted to get a good education so he could grow up and become an investment banker and be rich like the guest of honor! You can only imagine the discomfort in the crowd ~ wait, no, you're supposed to want to be a teacher or social worker, something meaningful ~ it was priceless!

I am laughing outloud. The driver of the car thinks I am bonkers but umm, he thinks that anyway.
