long hair and tan equals?...

a long time ago when i had long hair and was fairly tan from summer tour maybe or what not, every now and again people would mistake me for being native american.

earlier this week for the first time in many years it happened again. the security guard at Walgreens asked me "are you native american?" because he has a lot of friends in texas/new mexico who are native american, apparently.

it makes me wonder what it would be like to marry a native american woman, what people would think of our kids. family photos would be interesting, especially with my mom and dad. it'd be fun to confuse people.

a lot of people ask me if I'm mexican, native american, or native hawaiian. However, around here I largely think it's because they've never actually seen any of those...

People always ask I "have some Hispanic, Mexican or Latina in me", also especially in the summer. I have a little natural tan because I'm half Italian, but I still feel Spanish origin is a stretch!

When I was younger I was asked if I was half-asian.. though I don't know why. I don't really see it. *shrug* :)
