I was putting on makeup today when my brother starts this conversation:
D: Carla, is that your natural skin color?
C: You mean, before the makeup?
D: You look sickly.
C: I am sickly.
D: No, I mean you look dead.

D: You buy makeup for black people just to look normal.
D: You should wear makeup for the dead, you know, if it weren't so harmful.
C: Why, so I can get that nice embalmed look?
D: You already have that embalmed look!
C: I do not!
D: You're right, you move around a little more.
