Characters: Margot, me, TJ (an old friend from college who was roommate to both me and Brodie at different times in Baltimore), Clover the Bear (aptly named because of the clovers/shamrocks all over her body).
Setting: Getting into a rental car in Denver, CO. 9:30 pm. Temperature: about 45 degrees.
TJ, pointing to Clover: "Margot, look at all those shamrocks on your bear."
Margot: "These are clovers, not shamrocks."
TJ: "Do you know what a shamrock is?"
Margot: "Yes. Shamrocks are kind of like punk rock."
