Do I Look Jewish To You?

On Friday I was at a school. I was running late for Yard Duty, and I didn't have enough time to return my Bible to my classroom before yard duty (I had taken it into the staffroom to read it... well, duh).

So I'm walking about the near empty area I've been assigned, and one of the kids sees it and asks me, "Are you Christian?"

"Yes," I answer.

"So'm I," he says.

Five minutes later, he comes up to me and asks," Are you sure you're Christian?"

"I'm sure," I say.

Monday, and I was in the same school and same class. So the boy asks me, "Are you SURE you're Christian?"

"I'm SURE." I say. "Why do you keep asking?"

"You don't LOOK Christian."

"What does a Christian looks like?"

"Not like you."

"All right, what do I look like?"

He thinks for a while, "You look Jewish."

Huh? I do not look Jewish. (Incidentally, my biological great-grandfather was Jewish.) "I do not look Jewish."

"Yes, you do."

"Well, I'm English. And I'm Christian."

A nearby girl says, "I thought you were an Islander."

I would just like to point out, that I look more Jewish than Islander. And I don't look Jewish.
