In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

It hit me last night when my wife first moved out here I used to tease her that she was like the wife on that show. From a big city, likes to shop, kinda oblivious to rural living...

Yesterday it hit me she can now go around yelling for Oliver...
