Scenes from a Taco Bell

[Outside, Lunchtime. Two men in "San Juan Capistrano Police Volunteer" uniforms get out of a similarly-marked RAV-4. They are each in their sixties, maybe pushing seventy. They amble inside.]

Old Man 1: But I don’t think I can vote for John McCain. He’s too old.

Old Man 2: Plus, he’s a warmonger.

Yes, this really happened. I sat near them to try to listen to their subsequent banter during lunch, but they sat silently and ate, then left.
