Snark"Oh hey, that guy's a kayaker," I said. "Pretty neat."We were behind a car at a stop light, and there was a sticker of a kayak in the back window.
"He's driving a Hummer, though."
"What's the business case for buying a Hummer, exactly?" I asked.
"There isn't," Eli 15.7 said. "They just want one."

"Oh no!" I said.
"Payless Shoes?" Eli said.
"Come on, man," I said. "You just bought a Hummer and you're buying shoes at Payless?"
Eli laughed. "That's all he can afford," he said.
"There's a marine store three doors down. At least park there, so people think you have a boat, too."
Life is complicated.
