Did You Hear That?
Date: May 20, 2008
Time: 2:00 p.m.
Place: An undisclosed location in Rio Dell, CA
Two women, presumably grandmother and granddaughter are sitting at a table drinking tea and chatting.
Granddaughter: My friend's husband is taking her to Venice for her 30th birthday. Isn't that sweet? I would love to go to Venice.
Grandmother: Venice? You mean in Italy?
Granddaughter: Uh huh.
Grandmother: Why would you want to go to Italy? There's nothing but Wops there.
Grandmother: You know, this used to be a Wop and Portuguese (pronounced port-a gee) town, but you can't use words like those anymore. People get mad.
