Katie: Well I don’t care if being trans means my documentation’s a mess and my home state won’t even let me have a copy of my birth certificate — if our state is going to be one of those horrible states with a racist, classist, transphobic, election-fixing voter ID laws, then tomorrow I’m going to the DMV and come hell or high water, I’m not leaving without a damn Pennsylvania ID.
Vera: OK, but what if hell AND high water come? Are you prepared for that?
Katie: Prepared? I’m planning for it! See, Hell will show up all full of fire, and then high water will rise and put the fire out, getting sizzled to steam in the process. I always plan for these things. How do you think I survived to be 31?
Vera: I would have guessed it involved a deal with Satan.
Katie: Well, obviously it did. And if high water shows up when my calculations say it should, that’s yet another bullet dodged!
Vera: Wait… there’ll be bullets too? Do you have a plan for those?
Katie: Of course I do! You didn’t think a little water was all you needed to take the devil out, did you?
Vera: OK, but… how do you know the devil will even be there?
Katie: At the DMV? Really? Come on now.
