Class struggle

Sis-Bob tells me this story: She's living in New York City these days and just bought herself a new microwave. Carrying it home through the snow on Park Avenue in the very bastion of Manhattan yuppery, she passes an affluent-looking gentleman out walking with his young daughter. The daughter asks, loudly, "Daddy, why is that lady carrying a big box?" to which father replies, "because that's her job."

I feel a little bad stealing Sis-Bob's story, but then she always did have better material than me.

Oh my. That's a little sad.

Sis-Bob doesn't have a blog, so steal away.

Good to hear about her...I've been wondering what she's been up to. A real funny one that Sis-Bob. I'm now flooded with very silly memories of you and Sue and outrageous conversations way back in the olden days.

"Beacsue that's her job"...could he have been less creative? BORing. But, thank you for the visual.
