18. I know what you mean.

One of my sisters is a loyal republican. I love her, but I'll be damned if I can figure out how she thinks. When my sisters & I got together this summer, she kind of off-handedly mentioned that she didn't know what her oldest son (who beat Hodgkin's Disease at 15) is going to do this October when he turns 26 and she won't be able to keep him on her insurance. She also has a 22 year old with some health issues, (a lot of which stem from the fact that he's 22 and thinks he's indestructible) who is also on their insurance. She kind of caught herself and gave me a weak smile, so I didn't rub in the obvious, namely that she was planning on voting for the guy who would take that away from her, throwing her younger son to the insurance industry wolves. But she knew she stepped in it, and I was holding back because I love her.
