I'm half african, so I must identify with starvation, slavery, and "medicine man" type doctors.
I'm half dutch, so I must be "brainwashed by the white man" (an exact quote), smoke pot, endorse prostitutes, walk in wooden clogs, and grow tulips.
I live in Norway, so I must see polar bears roaming the streets (actually, my city is famous for its ridiculous amounts of rain), I must eats whale meat (its not that tasty), and hit baby seals in the heads with icepicks...
I'm a psychology student, so I must be able to read your mind (nope, just better at noticing when you are lying/unhappy/trying to manipulate me), and I must be an expert at messing with your head. As a pp said: I was plenty good at messing with peoples heads before I studied psych.
We are getting a puppy, general reaction is a huge squeal. Then they wonder what type of puppy, and we say an Old English Bulldog. General reaction a dropped smile, and accusations of wnting to have a "fighter dog". No, actually we want a child friendly bag of slobber and lazy, who will come along for walks in the woods, but will also lay peacefully by my feet while I study. Also, we think they are gorgeously ugly, and have put a lot of time and thought into the type of dog we are getting, so we are pretty darn sure she will be awesome with our three-year old, and our family in general.
