The Man Who Lives In My House (demonstrating his extraordinary capacity for empathy): "The republicans must be really bummed right now. The've had so many mediocre people."
Me (lying on the floor, stretching my hamstrings be cause I ran 3 miles uphill today, people. UPHILL):
"I need wine."
TMWLIMH: "How will you drink it down there? Shall I order up an IV?"
Me: "No, just a bendy straw, like Sarah Palen. And as for republican mediocrity, I don't feel bad for them in the least! This is a DEMOCRACY. They CHOSE those people."
Empathy has never been my strong suit.
