a moment in the day: in line
In line at the store, I hear this conversation, between two men behind me, about the state of the world and their actions within it, Portland style.
Guy 1: I'm going to the protest tonight.
Guy 2: What are you protesting?
Guy 1: Trump's a jackass.
Guy 2: You can't protest that Trump's a jackass.
Guy 1: Sure I can.
Guy 2: You have to protest something that can be changed.
Guy 1: Ah, fair enough.
Guy 2: I forgot to shave this morning.
Guy 1: Mmm.
Guy 2: You going to do No Shave November?
Guy 1: I'm going to do No Shave Trump. I'm not going to shave until he's gone.
