Thursday night I was required to attend a school meeting for Ntokozo. It was my first real school meeting as a parent. They talked to us about their uniform, the schedule, promotion requirements, and stuff like that. Super exciting stuff.
The most interesting part, though, was being the only white face in a sea of brown faces. I was certainly the ONLY white dude there. It wasn't really a big deal, but it made me think, when was the last time I was the only _______ in a big group of __________? What about for you? When was the last time you were the completely different one in the group? When were you the only woman in a group of men? When were you the only athlete in a group of scholars? When were you the only American in a group of foreigners? I'd love to hear from you. Leave us a comment and share a story.
