One time, I drew a little boy's face on a piece of paper, using a red felt tip pen. Niqui got the paper and the pen and when she returned the paper to me, I saw that the boy's face was colored with the red felt tip pen. I told Niqui, "Oh, so he's African-American."

She replied, "He's got a bloody face."

I just love how morbid she has become. Her parents don't.
