My Sister Knows Me Well

The following is a paraphrased conversation between my sister and me today.

D: How are you?

Me: Well, I was up at 5:30, at school all day, had a breakdown at mom and dad’s, went out to dinner, am on my way to a church meeting, and then I’ll go home, watch TV and then shoot myself in the face.**

D: Don’t do that.

Me: You can’t stop me.

D: Actually, I know you won’t, because I know you’re a Democrat, and therefore you don’t have a gun in your home.

Me: Good point.

**Literary Device lesson of the day: hyperbole–extreme exaggeration. Don’t put me on any kind of special watch of some sorts.
