Kathy tells me about her schoolteacher blonde friend. "We'd been 'dispatched' by our husbands to get some beer. We'd walked into a real scuzzy dive where we were definitely the only women. I asked for a six pack of Bud Light and paid the guy. 'Judi' was then asked what she needed. In a clear voice which could be heard all over the room, she asked, 'How many are in a six-pack?'"
