What made you go blue?

Stuffing envelopes under an OREGON FOR HILLARY banner, listening to the jazz station, it takes a while for the conversation to heat up.

“What made you go blue?” asks one regular of another.

I’m a little confused — did this person change ranks somehow? Politics are not really basement conversation fodder, other than eye-rolling references to the current president.

“Well, it’s supposed to be lighter blue in the back, and brighter in the front, but it needs a few washes.”

The blue hair must be new.

That makes more sense.

The woman who asked has blue hair, too.
