I met an old classmate from my high school days who said, now that she's retired, she is very active in the Republican Womens' Committee.
I did stuff a sock in my mouth but my first smart-assed remark was going to be: "Isn't that an oxymoron, or a physical impossibility?"
I didn't think that would be a smart move at a class reunion for some odd reason!
I did say, "Oh. That must be interesting and challenging at this time of year."
See, I CAN be diplomatic.
