There's no box to check!
For some reason, these surveyors
don't even have an "other" box.
I always pick according to my mood of the
day: Asian or White. But it's annoying.
People used to ask me if I was "Mixed."
These days I must look less "Mixed," because now people
think I am White and tired looking due to the Asian-ness
of my eyes and the way my eyelids have always been.
I am thinking of getting a T-shirt made that
says, "I'm not tired, I am half-Asian."
