After over seven years of marriage I have found out a shocking secret that Mme. Liberal has been keeping from me.

During a hike we were taking last week she, a fellow born and raised resident of the Pacific Northwest, admitted to me that she didn’t know the difference between a pine tree and a fir. I was shocked. I’m not sure where we go from here. Maybe it was those years that she spent in Utah during her last couple of years of high school and during college. I know one thing for sure, I blame her parents for not raising her right.

Anybody else learned of a shocking lack of knowledge on the part of their SO?

*For the record a fir has short needles and green/gray bark. A pine has long needles and red/brown bark.
