Overheard in the Doctor's Office

A pair of older ladies– a mother and her daughter– were seated opposite of me at the doctor’s office yesterday.  The daughter was probably in her mid to late 50s.  The mother in her mid-late 70s or early 80s.  The daughter was reading the Chicago Tribune to her mother, and I couldn’t help but overhear a portion of their conversation:

Daughter: Oh my goodness, Mom did you see this?

Mother: What, dear?

Daughter: These two women got married in California.  Ellen DeGeneres and her girlfriend.

Mother: Really?

Daughter: Yes, you know they passed that law in California that allows them to get married.

Mother: What does it say?

Daughter: Oh it says what they wore- Ellen wore a white pantsuit and Portia wore a white dress.  And they talk about the cake and the music and who was all there.

Daughter: Hm.

Mother: Hm.

Daughter: Well to each his own, I guess.

Mother: Yep.

Daughter: I guess if they’re in love, it’s a good thing.

Mother: Yep.

Daughter: Oh doesn’t she look pretty?

Mother: Sure does.  Just lovely.
