I recently was part of a conversation at a bar with a group of people from another country. One of the men at the table said “Wouldn’t it be funny if Palin wins. She would run the country like a house. You’ll eat your veggies and take your higher taxes and endless wars and you will like it! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!” Needless to say I turned a couple of different colors.
Here are the answers that ran through my head:
1. How dare you. I don’t know what goes on in your country, but in America, women don’t have to run houses we can do what ever we want!!! (Not that there is anything wrong with running houses.)
2. Yeah buddy, well, I hate her for turning the conversation from Hillary Clinton, a capable leader, to lipstick and shopping sprees at expensive clothing stores.
3. I can’t say I hate her ’cause then it looks like I am a self hating woman. I love women. We can do anything.
4. AGGGGGGGGHHHHHH. (this one was accompanied with me bashing his head with a beer bottle and then taking his wallet and running)
So what did I say? Nothing. By the time I had picked which option to say the conversation had moved on.
I wonder what would have happened if I said what I thought.
