This was an actual conversation between Hillary and I. Maybe you won't think anything of it, but I thought it was odd.
Jonathan: "Do you have any mints or gum?"
Hillary: "Yeah, I bought some on clearance the other day."
Jonathan: "You bought gum . . . on clearance?
1. They put gum on clearance? Seriously? Does slashing thirty-five cents of a seventy-five cent pack of gum really start moving merchandise?
2. We may be poor, but I'm pretty sure we're not so hard up for cash that we have to wait until gum goes on clearance before throwing down for a pack of trident.
. . . and no, this was not some sort of economy size/family pack, just your average, run-of-the-mill pack of trident being clearanced out at P&C.
P.S. What's weird is that Hillary doesn't even like gum.
