Long May She Wave

A friend and I just got back from a short trip up to Reno--you know, a "get the heck out of Dodge for a couple days" trip.  Yesterday I was drying off after getting out of the hot tub and I heard a nearby lady talking.  She'd had maybe one or two too many and was speaking her mind.  Her rant went something like this:

I love this country!  I was born in a Communist country.  Here I don't wait in line for food.  Look, I'm even fat!  (She had a couple extra pounds but wasn't fat.)  People who don't like it here, to Hell with them.

I picked up my shirt, showed it to her, and said, "I love this country, too."  Then I put it on and went back to my room to get ready for dinner.
