I picked up a couple from The Kennedy School and took them to a friends' home in outer SE Ptown. We were chatting and got around to the "where are you from" variety of questions. After a few hilarious questions/answers I get that He is from Utah, she is from LA.
Me: I used to live in Sandy, UT but never in LA. Gotta be quite a culture shock huh?
He: Yeah. It's rough being from Utah and being liberal.
Me: What? NO. Is that even possible?
He: And to make it better I'm a Jew.
Me: Holy Chri ... wow. And they LET YOU OUT??
He: Well ... yeah. I suppose. But don't tell anyone.
Me: Hunh. So it wasn't so much a "get out of town and club a woman over the head to take her back and procreate" as it was an "escape plan" eh?
She: Yeah, 'cuz us 6 foot tall Chinese women are so easy to club.
Me: looking at them in the rear view So ... you waited until she bent down to tie her shoes?? :)
They were funny folks. Here for a wedding.
