I'm white, well actually I'm tan

The other day I was walking by the elementary school and the kids were out at recess. One cute little boy, who was clearly the class clown, was trying to get my attention. He kept yelling, hey, hey, hey you .... so I turn around and this little boy does a dance or something silly, trying to show off to his friends, I laugh with him for a bit, then continue on my walk. His friends are laughing, and so I am I because it takes me back to that age. So, he trys again to get my attention, but this time I just kept walking, so he keeps trying. I couldn't help but start to overflow with laughter when I heard him say "hey, heeey you, hey hey white girl". I am not sure why I found it so funny, but I did :)

My younger team that I coach also jokes with me about being a haule (or a white person).
