A white man said, "Colored people are not allowed here."
The black man turned around and stood up.
He then said,
"Listen sir...when I was born I was BLACK,
when I grew up I was BLACK,
when I'm sick I'm BLACK,
when I go in the sun I'm BLACK,
when I'm cold I'm BLACK,
when I die I'll be BLACK.
But you sir,
when you are born you're PINK,
when you grow up you're WHITE,
when you're sick, you're GREEN,
when you go in the sun you turn RED,
when you're cold you turn BLUE,
and when you die you turn PURPLE.
and you have the nerve to call me colored?"
The black man then sat back down and the white man walked away...

I'm so sorry for the wait on my first story, I'm really shy about my writing, and it only took 7 pep talks from Mrs.PercyPotter to get me to put it on here. I would really enjoy support, and some girl names that start with "M" in your reviews. Thanks so much!!

Mary had a little Lamb, His fleece was white as snow. And everywhere that Mary went, that Lamb was sure to go. He followed her to school each day, t'wasn't even in the rule. It made the children laugh and play, to have a Lamb at school. And then the rules all changed one day, illegal it became; To bring the Lamb of God to school, or even speak His name! Every day got worse and worse, and days turned into years. Instead of hearing children laugh, we heard gunshots and tears. What must we do to stop the crime that's in our schools today? Let's let the Lamb come back to school, and teach our kids to pray.

~You sometimes try to control water.

~You've gone to Google maps and looked up Camp Half-Blood’s address.

~Even though not diagnosed, you claim you have ADHD or dyslexia and blame it on your God parent.

~You yell "Annabeth!" every time you see a NY Yankees hat.

~You make the PJO characters on Sims, as Miis on the Wii, and other video games.

~Anytime you see an orange shirt, you look at the front of it to see if it is a Camp Half-Blood shirt.

~You are a PJO character for Halloween.

~Recite lines randomly from the books.

-Athena- She scares Percy more than Zeus. Also, she cannot be distracted and her plans always work.

-Hades- Um, this one is rather obvious- also you might not be buried with a drachma in your pocket.

-Hermes- Cutting off your Internet access would be slow and painful torture. Also I blame the economy crisis on Luke's stealing federal funds.
