Balls In Court

channel the arab from office space

one person i work with is a black woman. i think she is hilarious and says the funniest things. granted white people really aren’t funny in comparison. yesterday this is what she said:

“the ball’s in my court and i’m shooting for three.”

i laughed for a solid few minutes. but now i’m wondering if i can say it. will it sound strange coming from my mouth? i’ll be like the arab guy from the movies who trys to fit in with the black people by repeating what they say. that guy always is good for a laugh…you can’t take him seriously.

    Also puts me in mind of Jackie Chan’s character in ‘Rush Hour’ nearly getting himself killed after going up to a black guy and saying, “What’s up, mah nigga?” after seeing his black partner do the same thing.

    that movie is a classic and one of my favorites.
