Being Green

Gloria made some pumpkin muffins today, and she walked in while I was eating one over the sink.

"Can I get you a plate?" she asked.

"No, thanks," I said. "I'm eating green."

She started laughing. "I'd believe you if I hadn't seen you do it for twelve years."

"I'm very conscious of social trends," I said. "Green is the new black."

Gloria is a member of the "diversity committee" for an organization that is, um, not very diverse at the present time.

"It's hard to come up with an idea for an event to promote diversity that will appeal to people who aren't diverse already," she said.

"Well, take it in baby steps," I said. "Maybe you could start off with a 'Different Ways That We're White' festival."
