When I was in the Midwest this summer with family who don’t necessarily share my political views, the conversation inevitably turned to politics. I just kept my mouth shut as nobody was going to change anyone else’s mind, and there was no way things would have ended well.
At one point a family member said “I hate politics -- let’s change the subject. So, Nancy, how’s Shorter Half doing?”
I said, “Well, ever since he got elected to the School Board he’s been pretty busy. I don’t know if being married to a politician is supposed to better or worse than being married to a lawyer.”
At that point we decided it was time to adjourn and go to dinner.
