Shake, Shake, Shake it Off

Random Lady I've Never Met Before: Oh! Your baby is cute!

Me: Thanks!

Random Lady: Does he have... The Cancer?

Me: ... Um... His face? He has some dermatology issues but we're working on it...

Crazy Lady: Oh, that's good. I'd imagine it would be hard to bond to an adopted baby with cancer.

Me: ....

Crazy-Ass Lady: He is adopted, right?

Me: Does it matter?

Fucking Crazy-Ass Lady: Oh! Haha, no? I mean? It's just... he's so white and you're so dark!

Me: ...

Dumb Bitch who Needs to Pull Her Foot Out of Her Mouth: ... Um... I take it he takes after your husband? Your husband must be really white. Why...

Me, walking away.

I reckon that crazy ass lady just went on about her day not knowing what was wrong with YOU! She's not worth your time though so forget about her. There are more of us really great people around than there are idiots like that.

What an idiot! She needs a shoehorn to remove the foot she is choking on!

People are RIDICULOUS! My daughter has a skin condition called icthyosis (imagine exczema on crack..you're close), and my EX father in law said "wow, she looks like you put her through the meat grinder!". What is WRONG with people??? Your little guy is beautiful, she can suck it!

I lived in NYC with older son and you should see the crazy ass questions I get from people. Sometimes you just gotta walk away!

Hey, if nothing else it makes for good fodder for the blog.
After reading your previous post I wanted to cry for you. You pretty much should be a saint.
