Anjali and I went to Dionne Kamara's movement class for the 1st time yesterday. I used to go with Jaxon and she remembered me once she saw Anjali's earrings. Now usually women remember me from my stunning Brad Pitt looks and David Beckham body but never has a women remembered me from my daughter's earrings who she has never seen before. She said you are Colombian right? I said no I am whiter than Newt Gingrich but my wife is Colombian. I said how did you remember Colombia? She said when I noticed your daughter's earrings I remembered talking to you about Colombia. You see earrings on a baby is a cultural thing.
I thought to myself I guess I have no culture.
Then I started to think about some of the comments I get when people notice she has earrings. For the most part they are all good but it's the tone... They say Ohhhh she has earrrrrrringggggssss. Ohhhh how how how do you say... how cuuuuteee.
Originally I protested getting Anjali earrings at an early age because I have no culture but then Vivian said think about it and pulled out a BIG Colombian gun. So I did the pain math. 2 small holes in the nerveless earlobes has to be a day in the park compared to my wife squeezing my daughter down a 10 cm (about 4 inches) tunnel for an hour reshaping her head to look like an alien for 3 days.
Ok Vivian I thought about it. You and your BIG Colombian gun win again.

Good question. She laughed said she liked it and never remarked again. And, I am still alive. :)
