So up here, there's a commercial that actually says, "Dick Hannah's Dick Says Yes" (kind of sexy), and they sell liquor at Walgreens, but all the bottles have alarms on them! Lol!!! So I was at Walgreen's today to get a broom, and they only had this plastic white-and-green one for sale. I reluctantly brought it up to the checkout and put it down on the counter. Platic bristles? No thank you. A man just at that moment walked in from outside and got in line behind me. He noticed my broom. "I got a broom just like that", he said. "It's okay." He didn't sound too impressed either. I was quick, therefore, to say that I only got it because it was the only one they had, and that the grocery store had the same type too. "It'll do, but its not my favorite", I said. The guy kind of gave a laugh and said "Well, I don't know where you come from. For all I know, you may live in the middle of nowhere and need a better broom", and then I popped up with, "Well I come from Texas, and in Texas, we don't have these kind of brooms". Total lie. I held the broom up and waved it at him as I walked out out the door. He didn't say anything else.
