Living Your Faith

Sunday morning. Gleemonex reads her New York Times and keeps an eye on the Yankees game Mr. Gleemonex has going on TV. A story mentions the big support for Barack Obama amongst "latte liberals."

Gleemonex: "Heh. 'Latte liberals.'"
Mr. Gleemonex: "What's that supposed to be?"
Gleemonex: "Um ... white, 30s, college-educated, relatively affluent ... "
Mr. Gleemonex: "Prius owners ... "
[Guffaws from both, glancing out the window at their 36-hour-old Prius parked in the driveway.]
[A moment passes in silence.]
Mr. Gleemonex: "I don't drink lattes, bitches."

Oh sweet lord...all I need is a Prius?! Does white mocha count as a latte? It's really the only coffee I care for.

Latte Liberal and Proud.

(In a state full of Rednecks, Meth Users or God-Fearing Republicans, the Latte Liberal is a good, good place to be.)

Hee! Yeah, I'm fine with it -- there are lots worse things to be!

And Guinness, I'm pretty sure the white mocha counts! If it takes more than two words to order your coffee, doncha know ...
