Scene: Amanda at upscale hair salon. First visit to a new stylist.
Amanda: I don’t want to take off much length. Just trim the ends. But I want to try bangs like Sarah Palin’s.
Stylist: I don’t watch TV. I don’t know who that is.
Amanda: Um. She’s McCain’s running mate for the vice presidency.
Stylist: Yeah, like I said. I don’t watch TV. I don’t really follow politics.
Amanda: Do you vote? Because she’s really scary and if you vote you need to read up on her.
Stylist: Uh…I don’t vote.
We didn’t chat much after that.
And my bangs still look nothing like Palin’s!
