    I once sent a funny (it WAS funny you hear me?) story to Life in These United States when I was 12 years old. They didn’t take it. Fuck them and the paper they print on.

    God help me. I just tried to “click” the dots on the left side. Honestly I miss the RD on the pot, the only time I see it there anymore is in Des Moines at Dan’s brother’s.

    Ricky Cameron, we’d love to hear your Life in These United States story. Please, please, please.

    Fuck ‘em if they can’t take a joke.

    I used to think Reader’s Digest was Rita’s Digest. My mother’s New England pronunciation sounded like the name of my neighbor-friend Rita.

    Maybe clusterflock should have a Life in These United States category.

    Now that I think about it I was older than twelve. It happened in high school after I’d been working for a while at the IGA in Pokey. To a customer who said Thank You (for a carry-out), the proper response was Thank YOU, and come back. Anyway, the jist of the story was I’d gotten a haircut at some point down in Walnut Ridge in front of the usual pickle-barrel old-timers generally in attendance. As I paid my barber, he said Thank you. I replied, Thank YOU, and come back.

    I think I typed it in Red ribbon on a little royal portable on a quarter sheet of paper. Now that I think about it maybe I should reconsider that fuck them.

    I would have published that, Rick. Especially if you’d typed it in red.

    Was there ever a typewriter ribbon option other than the red and the black?
