Just don’t tell her mama

Dawn Summers played in the World Series of Poker:

He asked me to sign over the cashier’s check and a waiver for them to use my likeness.I cringed at this a little. I didn’t think my event was televised…which is good because as far as my mother is concerned, I’m out here to attend a four day long wedding, and then just staying to hang out for a couple of days after that.

“Four days for a wedding?” she had asked skeptically.

“Yeah. White people. Go figure,” I said giving the answer that has served me pretty well these last twenty years of immersion in white culture.

Being on TV, with cards in my hands and shades on my face…well, that could pose a problem.
