I just had the following conversation with my mom:

Some segue involving my mom's observation that if we lived in Afghanistan, I could smack my sister around for being annoying.

Mom: Well, if we lived in Afghanistan, you'd be dead or hiding in a cave.

Me: So I'd be a member of al-Qaida?

Mom: Sure. They recruited pretty much all the men your age.

Me: Or, I could have joined the Northern Alliance. You know, the good guys.

Mom: Well, I guess.

Me: You just assumed I'd be one of the bad guys.

Mom: Well, your political beliefs are so different from ours.

Me: You know, the Taliban is the more conservative movement.
