Quick e-mail excerpt from Reed

From the body of one of Reed's recent e-mails to his friends...

Just thought I would provide a little update about the Williams in Florida. We spent last weekend in Apalachicola celebrating our second anniversary and the Memorial Day weekend. I think we killed about two hund oysters between us. Just a quick story to show how I am becoming acclimated to the Florida lifestyle.

Scene: Apalachicola Convenience Store, I walk in

Lady Cashier: Boy, are you going out in the sun today?
Me: I think so.
Lady Cashier: Here, then you need this. (handing me a bottle of SPF 60 lotion).
Me: Come on, that's just rude.
Lady Cashier: No, it's considerate. Have you seen your legs? And here in Franklin County we're honest. Franklin County - home of the drunks (as she sips from a solo cup).

That is hilarious and I think she was being awful considerate! I have seen your legs too!

one, you aren't getting acclimated to the florida lifestyle, if you have been a florida resident for most of your life. two, why did she refer to you as boy? that's just insulting.
