Shopping with John Edwards
A few years ago my daughter and my nephew decided that it would be fun to go to the mall the day after Thanksgiving. I had never done this before, the mall gives me vertigo and I can't breathe well from all of the perfume. But we went, and we had a really fun time. So now every year Gerry and I take them. Yesterday we went and my nephew wanted to go into Gamestop, probably the most crowded shop in the mall. We went in, got in line to get him a game and standing behind us in line was John Edwards and his son Jack. This is probably the first time I have ever seen the man without a smile on his face. Guess he doesn't have too much to smile about these days. Poor man. In the south, whenever we are having unkind thoughts about someone, rather than be terribly rude, we will say the thing and end it with "Bless his heart". For instance: "This man that wanted to be our country's president turned out to be a real horse's ass, Bless his heart!" I did feel rather sorry for him, there he was the day after Thanksgiving, shopping with his son in Gamestop with the rest of us fools, not once did I see him with that famous smile on his face. His face was very tan though. He is a good looking man.
