the only conversation we’ve had all evening.
boy (watching television): hey, isn’t this one of the godfather movies?
me (looking): um…no.
boy (pointing to one of the actors on screen): isn’t that guy in the godfather?
me: yes, but it’s not one of the godfather movies.
boy: are you sure?
me: yes. sidney poitier was not in the godfather. neither are hardly any other black people.
boy: how was i supposed to know that?
me: you’ve watched the godfather.
boy: oh, right.
