Oops! That's not what I was implying, as the socio-economic range pays no attention to man-made borders. I'm still musing on why an [existing] structure for language and socialization has been overturned in some places and not others.

Actually, aside from the ciggies, this might belong to mom or sister-in-law; I carry the smallest one possible, and only when I have to. Crochet or knitting needles: still considered WMDs by the airlines, I believe? Good choice on the Terry Pratchett, though.

It's been a culture shock to see ladies carrying ornamental dogs in stores here; never saw that back in Wiscahhhnsin. Maybe I should
get a giant handbag and start packing Dominic-nic-nic around. He's a 13-pound (how many rolls of quarters is that?)
domestic short-hair who likes to roughhouse. Moshing with bag boys would definitely appeal to him!
