Here’s my score:
I’ve got the water bottle, the weight-loss conversations, and the Malcolm Gladwell book (okay – books, plural – Blink and The Tipping Point). I’ll give myself half credit for the cuffed jeans, as I cuff mine not because I’m white, but because I’m only five feet tall. I consider it a point of pride that I have NOT read Eat, Pray, Love. I will cop to the hand sanitizer, as small children are the plague-carrying rats of our time. Does the yoga mat count if it’s disintegrating? I do have a tattoo, but it is not ironic in any way, shape, or form.
So, that’s five and a half points, counting the yoga mat. I guess I get to keep my official ‘White Person’ card.
