You know the old saying “curiosity killed the cat?” Do you know the origins? Yeah, me either. People's reactions to things they are curious about are all over the place. Some stare and point. Some ask questions.
Is asking a question always the best path to take? Just because “hey, I wonder” pops it to your head doesn't always mean words should pop out of your mouth, hmm? My two boys are adopted from China and they look different than me (mostly because I'm not Chinese.) My piece on Blunt Moms is a (hopefully) funny account of some of the crazy things that people – strangers, people I don't know – seem to have no qualms about asking me.
