Can’t get any whiter

Me: (holding out my hand, as is my custom, for a handshake after tutoring)

Student 1: (nose wrinkled, gives me the weakest handshake ever)

Me: It’s not like you’re going to turn white by touching my hand…

Student 2: Haha, you’re so funny, Miss. (He grasps my hand firmly) See [Student 1], this is how it’s done.

Me: (smiling)

Student 2: (as an aside to me) I’m already white, so I know I can’t get any whiter by shaking your hand.
