Nobody Is Retarded. Not Even You.
I have been stewing over something that happened earlier today. When Antonio and I arrived at Thunder-Sky, a guy and his buddy were having a smoke outside the Comet. One said he liked Antonio's art supply bag and then as I pulled a painting I am working on out of the back of the van, he again commented "Man that is good! Did you do that?"
I said yes and thanks.
The guy followed up with "So are you mentally retarded?"
It kind of took the wind out of my sails, so all I could come up with as a comeback was: "Yes I probably am."
The guy said, "Man you retards are making some cool shit."
What I should have said is: "Nobody is retarded. Not even you asshole."
