One time my friend Julia Winter and I were taking a road trip. We were in some gross bus station some place and I had striped hair and hers was Coca-Cola red and so we were getting some unsavory attention. Actually, probably almost anything female would have gotten unsavory attention where we were, but the way we looked couldn’t have helped.

This one dude comes over and asks her if she likes black guys.

Julia looks at him puzzled and says, “why, do you want to give me one?” It was so bizarre, like WTF, I just started laughing and couldn’t speak. The would-be lothario wandered off.

Turns out Julia thought he said “black eyes” instead of “black guys“.
