"When are you going to get a new haircut?"

Said by everyone who has known me since I was small. I've had the same haircut practically my entire life. I don't see a change any time soon.

" Why is your hair always up in a pony tail? "
The only time I ever changed it was on my graduation and when my dad cut it too short by accident.

In college I got a lot of questions like what are you? People didn't know I was mexican sometimes so they would ask. It kind of annoyed me I wasn't use to it.

"You, your younger sister and your older brother does not have any resemblance at all. Are you perhaps adopted? I mean why you look different from them?"

"Wow, I like how you look again today. Where did you buy those?"

"Did you have a face-lift? Cuz you really don't look like your parents or your siblings."



Welp, they're sure annoying as fuck. Especially that guy who asked me if I had face-lift.

"Why are you so damn good lookin'?" I kid, kind of I have had that asked once or twice by some random girls at a convention. It was weirdly flattering.

However I normally get asked "what color are your eyes" or "why is your hair so soft, you're a guy" or better yet "how'd you get that H-shaped below your lip" <--- that one has a wonderful story behind it that involves military training, profuse bleeding and having my lower right canine puncture through the skin directly below my lower lip. Fun times.

"Are you okay?"
"Why are you mad?"
Apparently when I'm spacing out or in the zone I look angry or upset. It's pretty annoying to get asked this a lot. Even my parents ask me even though I'm usually fine.

Person: "So what Nationality are you?"

Me "American."

Person: "Ha! Good one!, I mean like what are you?"

Me: "Human."

Person: "Oh well, yeah, I mean like ancestry, ethnicity, or race or whatever?"

Me: "All of them"

Person: "oh so are you like Black and mixed or asian and Black or Latina? You don't look like a regular Black person...and like you, don't be offended, but you speak really proper English."

Me: "Go away"


Also, a family stopped me in public while I was out with my boyfriend.

Father of random Family: Are you ok?

Me: Y-yes.

Mother: Do you know that man? Are you safe with him?

Me: Yes, he's my boyfriend...

Mother: Do your parents know?

Me: (realizing) OHHHH, yeah I'm an adult...I'm actually older than him. I just look really young. Yeah he's 21, and I'm more than that...I'm old. Old...like you should be worried about him.

Family: (looks of relief and confusion) ehhh...good glad you're ok!
