Monday morning carpool, waiting at a red light, watching pedestrians:
Jane: "Is it just me or are there are a lot more Asians on campus this year?"
Alpha: "Hmm, I don’t know…. It’s probably like when you buy a car and you start noticing them everywhere."
Jane (exhibiting her total lack of self-control): "So you’re saying that I’m seeing Asians because I own a Toyota?"
Alpha (eyes rolling): "No, like you saw a bunch of them one day and now you are noticing them more." , (Then moving on) "You do know that Indians and Russians are technically Asians, too...."
Jane: "Yeah, but they don’t make a decent car so they’re not as noticeable."I guess it's pretty clear why she doesn't leave home, huh?
