Marriage 201, Lecture 488: On the road

On the ferry from Bayfield to Madeline Island.

Me: That guy has got to be a liberal.

Edward, the dog belonging to Bonnie and Gary's neighbor, and the stick he fetched for me to throw.

SH: Why?

Me: He's wearing birkenstockish sandals, he's driving a Volvo, and he's smoking, even though it's against the rules. He's smoking American Spirit cigarettes.*

SH: Could be. But he's breaking the rules!

Me: The rules are for other people. I give it 90%.

SH: Are the cigarettes organic?

Me: Yes! They are! OK, 95%.

* The cigarettes that made liberals feel good about smoking again.

Yes, definitely a liberal.

I know a number of conservatives who smoke American Spirits, but they wouldn't be caught dead in birkies; however they seemed to have eschewed all cars. Did these folks' Swedish Ford have some pointless bumper stickers?
