Fruitcakes you're trying to negate Mr Happy but he's only speaking the truth, he may be adding a bit of personal feelings in but we all do that. Americans dont value intelligence in people, and like to make fun of people who are smarter than them. That's given.
I dont fault him for his Civil War hobby, um, apparently I like it too (I guess).
But everything else is pretty much spot on. He's almost child-like in nature, calling everyone dude and making blowtorch jokes etc. Christa is coming off as quite bitchy, and judgemental (who the hell is she to ask me about how I raise Clem?!).
Im not saying I wont keep an open mind about them both, but their 1st impressions are what they are
