we just showed our jump rope team the thriller video. confusion over M.J. continued as i had cut the questions off last week.
"wait, he's black?"
"no, thats not M.J., thats someone else. M.J. is singing"
"no, he use to be black. now he's white. because it doesn't matter if you're black or white."
"he sings?? i thought he was just a crazy man on the news."
"whats up with the jacket?"
"why did they call it thriller?"
"why are we doing this? this is bad."
the best was when i told them they'd have to wear the makeup from the video in our performance. i wish i'd had a camera of their faces before i told them i was kidding...
