Overheard while waiting for the bus (which picks up near the ice rink-end of the mall):
Dirty child who should be at school: "Momma, what are they doing?"
Stingy-haired mother who looks like she smoked fifty years worth of cigarettes all at once: "Ice skatin' - but that's not real ice."
Do you know how hard it is not to snort? I was doing a lot of inward snickering.
PS to the politicos: I do not give a flying rat's ass that you think the Obama books shouldn't go on the "Presidential History" table. I am not paid enough to care.
