the pot and the kettle

We’ve all heard of the phrase, right? I hope so.

So, in my dating history are 2 young men who are black. Chris and Roddy. I am mocked for it frequently, not because they are black, but because they are 2 young men who……just weren’t right for me. Also, they were (still are? not sure) best friends. More mocking.

Because I’m a youth leader, my dating history is frequently brought up as a “what not to do” example to my kids.

I’m not exactly sure of the context, but another leader (who was actually around for that part of my teen life) and I had just been talking about them and shortly after we changed the subject. I then said something that required that the pot/kettle phrase be said and then the other leader chuckled and said:

“It’s like the Chris calling the Roddy black.”

I of course was driven into fits of laughter, because what else can you do?

    Sounds like something DDTM would have said. I also would have thought that the bringing up of “that” time would have ended by now. I know that I haven’t said anything in a while about it.
