I just dropped my mom off at the subway stop after a great weekend together. Lots of yummy food, good (and not-so-good) card and dice games, and socializing. Next weekend: D will be here!
So today my mom wanted to stop and get bagels to take home with her. We went to the FANTASTIC local bagel place and were trying to decide what my sister would like. Not very exciting, eh? Well... (abbreviated convo)
Cashier: Can I help you?
Nanny: Yeah, we're just trying to figure out what kind of bagel my sister would want.
Cashier: Definitely chocolate chip. Want me to warm that up for you?
Nanny: Oh, no, thanks.
Mom: I've got to take it on a plane back to Texas.
Cashier: *stops, gives us a really, really weird look, puts her hand on her hip and says* So you voted for Bush?
Nanny & Mom: OH NO! We didn't!!!
Cashier: So you gonna vote for Obama?
Nanny: I already did!
Mom: I'm going to!
Cashier: *looks us over slowly, suspiciously* Okay, then.
And we got our bagels.
I'm so happy to be living in the liberal north!
