I Am A Bad Person

I came out of the grocery store a short while ago and there was a young couple there with their clipboards. Nothing unusual, and I prepared to say that I was not going to sign their petition. The young woman came up to me and rather pleasantly asked me if I support gay marriage. Without the slightest hesitation I replied, "My husband and I both support it."

I have no idea where that came from, it popped out of my mouth before I even knew it was coming, and I think it surprised me as much as it did her. I certainly showed it less than she did though; the look on her face was simply priceless. She finally stammered something about having a nice day and went in search of easier prey.

I can't wait to tell my wife Kathy about this.

My first thought was "did you go through UCSD on the way to the grocery store?", but this is pretty funny :)
