@ Family's house on Sunday afternoon, fam playing cards, I am watching/eating/telling stories.
Me (to Aunt Dede/Mom/they might as well be the same person): 'I am going to see if I can go to the Obama rally in La Crosse on Wednesday.'
Aunt F: 'You want to actually SEE that black guy?!'
Me: 'Yep. And I am voting for him.'
Aunt F: 'I would never vote for him. Nobody knows nothing about him.'
Same place, hours later, different aunt:
Aunt L: 'So you are moving to Russia, huh?'
Me: 'Yep. St. Petersburg. It's really far north, right by Finland'
Aunt L: 'So it's right above Africa then?'
