Not only did I rip off my toenail fourth of july morning, I managed to offend a Vietnam vet by the end of the day. I'm not totally sure what I was talking about, but it was some kind of freedom I thought we should have that day because "we just won our freedom." Something like the freedom for the T to be open past 1am.
Boston cab driver: Hope you don't mind if I interject ... I fought for freedom in 'Nam.
Me: Oh, you personally ... well then you definitely should be able to take the T past 1.
Some people clearly are not humored by me - a Vietnam veteran would probably be the last person to be so ...
