Irreconcilable Differences

We stopped in Taos, New Mexico. Cheri found a interesting bead shop. She made a purchase, and initiated a conversation with Lisa, the woman who ran the shop. Lisa was, in her own words, a “flaming liberal”.

Somehow, she never had any serious discussions about political issues with either of her future husbands, both of which turned out to be conservative Republicans. “Probably the reason for my divorces.”

She recounted the details of her first divorce. Interestingly, the reason for the divorce was a local issue. In a phone call from her husband, he said “if you were to vote for the school bond issue I would divorce you.”

Lisa replied, “Fine, I will be staying at my sister’s place.”
