Last noontime question from Michaelskis

Wow, I missed it again.

But that is making me think… the 4pm / noontime question has been going for a while, and was intended to provide increased interaction at a time when posts numbers where down. Well in the past few months, several people have joined the clube, new members have increased posts and interaction, and my work load continues to increase as quickly as the temperature out side. So, this will be the final Noontime question from Michaelskis. The idea is up for grabs if someone would like it. I am still going to be an active member of cyburbia, but I think that I am all questioned out.

Looking back on all the questions I could have asked, but didn’t, makes me wonder….

What is the greatest question has anyone ever asked you in person?

Not the greatest question ever asked me, but certainly the most frequent:

"Are those your real eyes?"

As an African-American with naturally blue-gray eyes, I get that an awful lot.

I don't know about greatest question, but...

Stupidest Question Ever Asked :
When I was waiting tables in college, a new co-worker asked about my good sized cafe au lait birthmark: "What's that on the back of your leg?" Me: "A birthmark" Her: "What's that?" Me: "A mark I was born with." I also frequently get: "Did you know you sat in some dirt?"

Not the greatest, but surely the most unexpected:

"Would you mind leaving by the back door really quick? I think my wife just pulled into the driveway."

Wife? What wife?

"How much money will it take to get you to come work here and how soon can you start?"

Are you a Afrikaaner, or are you really black with blue eyes? Wow!

I get asked about my eyes quite a bit. Biologically, I've inherited quite a few Mediterranean features, so my light blue eyes contrast with dark hair and olive skin. I get "are they real?" a lot, too.

I'm an actual black guy, with a medium/light complexion, with blue-gray eyes. I've been called a dead ringer for actor Terrence Howard, another black guy with blue-gray eyes.

My mom has olive skin and pale blue eyes. So I know exactly how striking that is. :)
