It's (d)Evolved to This

My day job, increasingly, causes me to be less and less interested in political conversations. Now that we are a bit over one month out from Election Day 2012, this is what passes for a political conversation in my house:

Me: But at least I get to see Gloria Steinem speak! I think everyone should see her once. It's something I'm glad to check off the life list.

John: How come?

Me: Because she is one of the mothers of feminism! She was there! She, like, helped start it!

John: I think feminism is a failed experiment. Like California.

*cue laughter*

*cue gratitude for a witty joke rather than any attempt at a serious discussion of 
feminist history in the U.S. over the last 40 years*

  1. It is a pretty twisted, aggressive game, politics. John B is so funny.

    here's a funny line (from friend Dr. Jim) "I say 2 thumbs up for evolution." ha-ha.

    also, I have been flossing more lately, too!
