Yesterday, my brother’s girlfriend Christine and I were discussing various bits as I read out news headlines from the Guardian at large.
Me: Ooooh.. front page… a man is hoarding snakes.
Christine: He is a teacher from Costa Mesa.
Me: The Guardian is a newspaper based in London.
Christine: He is a teacher. Probably from Costa Mesa.
Me, clicking through to the article and reading the main headline: Oh. He. Is. A. Teacher. And he is hoarding over 400 dead and dying snakes.
Christine: SEE! I TOLD YOU SO! I know hoarders, they are are always teachers. I watch hoarding on TV, they are always teachers.
Me, continuing to read the article: He is from Southern California.
Christine: COSTA MESA!!!
Me: Actually Santa Ana.
[Santa Ana is the city adjacent to Costa Mesa.]
