07E4208C-88C3-411F-859A-7A6CB74EB845“My sister and I have had more than our fair share of difficult exchanges about politics, and it’s a real shame that we just can’t seem to see eye-to-eye on anything,” Ted said.

“Your sister is one of the most popular girls at school,” Eric said, “so maybe you should give her the freedom to be herself.”

“You’re right, Eric,” Ted said. “I’ll give her some time — a decent interval of time, anyway — to see if we can get through it without arguing.”

“I’m sure, in the aftermath of the current political chaos,” Eric said, “you and your sister will, once again, get along famously.”
