SARA: So I’m guessing you’re Armenian.
SAMIRA: No, I’m Catholic
SARA: Can’t Armenians be Catholics?
SAMIRA: Uh…yeah, sure, I guess. Weren’t we just talking about Easter?
SARA: We were, I was just curious. You see, I have this Armenian friend who looks just like you. I swear you could be twins.
SAMIRA: Oh. Well, I’m not Armenian actually.
SARA: Are you sure? You really look exactly like my friend. There couldn’t be some ancestor? Maybe someone who was adopted...or something…?
SAMIRA: No, definitely all German.
SARA: German? But you’re so…
SARA: I wasn’t going to say that
SAMIRA: But you were thinking it.
SARA: I didn’t…
SAMIRA: My mother’s blonde actually. Blue eyes too. Very Aryan.
SARA: I…uh…never would have guessed. I guess you take after your father.
SAMIRA: Actually people tell me I look exactly like her. But since you’ve never met her I could see how you could make that mistake.
SARA: Yeah, sorry about that. I have class, but maybe I’ll see you round.
Sara exits hurriedly, Samira laughs to herself. Grace enters
GRACE: What was that about? She ran out of here fast enough.
SAMIRA: She thought I was Armenian. Insisted on it in fact.
GRACE: Armenian? That’s random.
SAMIRA: Apparently she has a friend who’s practically my tiwn.
GRACE: Let me guess, brown eyes? Brown hair? Olive skin?
SAMIRA: I guess
GRACE: So what’d you tell her?
SAMIRA: That my family’s German
SAMIRA: Well it’s true
GRACE: You left out the Indian part didn’t you.
SAMIRA: It might have slipped my mind
GRACE: You’re so mean.
SAMIRA: Yeah well, what right does she have to insist that I’m Armenian anyway. I’m so sick of it. First that one guy who thought I MUST be Persian, and then the girl who thought I was Spanish, and now this one. It’s ridiculous
GRACE: The Spanish girl was just looking for a connection. You know, someone to maker her feel like she belongs. She’s an international student after all. She must feel like a fish out of water. Give her a break.
SAMIRA: Fine, but what about the others?
GRACE: Well they’re just obnoxious
SAMIRA: I’m so thrilled that you agree.
