“Hmm… what did I do today?” I say, thinking deeply. “Got drunk by noon… vomited into a mailbox… picked a fight with an oak tree… nope, not at all. In fact, I think that’s how I spent my day when 9/11 actually happened.”
“So you kept to the spirit of the day without knowing it,” says Tina. “Good for you.”
“How did you spend 9/11 Day?” I say.
“Went shopping, just like the President told us to,” says Tina the Lesbian. “Bought some shoes.”
