Core Dump (More Dirty Laundry Edition)

1. The other day when I went to buy laundry detergent the clerk at the drug store asked me if I wanted my change in quarters. That guy is going to go far.

2. But I didn't need them, because I'd been saving my quarters for weeks. A radical interpreter might well conclude that my primary goal in life is to have enough quarters by laundry day without having to do to the bank. I think there were times in Pittsburgh when I would buy a pastry that cost $1.25 over one that cost $1, just for the quarters.

3. It would've been much cooler if that question from the VP debates, instead of saying "without mentioning your running mate's name," had said "without using the letter 'e'." Wouldn't it?

4. The fact that I answer 'yes' to number 3 is just one of the reasons why I will never find myself within a hundred miles of public office.
