B reminds me of myself in 1979. First day in William Wirt Jr. High School in suburban DC. My mom conflated a public school in America with a "public school" in England and sent me in wearing a 3 piece suit. Imagine the humiliation for a 12YO!

Jack, an African American kid walked straight up to me as I was desperately trying to become one with the insides of my allotted locker and asked with a look of mock concern: "So who died brotha?"

I didn't know what to say. Then he whispered into my ear "Now you're supposed to say "not your mama, that's for sure." We remain tight to this day.
