I live in Portland.
I love Portland.
I love a man.
I love my baby.
I love my dog.
I love to cook.
I love wine.
From time to time, Vera will say something like:
“The black man gave me a doubloon at the Mardi Gras parade.” or:
“A black lady came to my school today and picked up Elizabeth.”
I remember the first time she made reference to a “black”…
People are gonna be dicks about this, but the fact that a qualified woman is reffing an NFL game in 2012 makes me absurdly happy.
