Introduction – Blogging this election has been much harder than 2012 or 2008. I don’t want to give the Republican candidate any more of my time or blog space than he deserves, but if I stay silent, if too many stay silent, then his misogyny and racism will spread. Instead of posting election-related content, I’ll simply tell you that I VOTED already, and move on to an everyday conversation.
Actual Text Message Conversations (I couldn’t make these up)
from Chuck: Gotta love our downtown! I went out to plug the meter again and a stranger had already done it.
my reply: Pay it forward!
And yet another day —
I was on my way to the Take and Bake pizza place to pick up a particular type of pizza for Eating the Opponent. As I pulled in to the parking lot, my phone went “Ding!” signaling a text message.
from Chuck: Here’s some must have – the Golden Girls Action figures. Someone really is producing them and will sell them at an upcoming comic con. Collect the whole set!
my reply: I want the Supreme Court Women set.
Chuck’s response: I bet the Ruth Bader Ginsberg action figure would kick the trump bobble head’s butt.
my reply: Darn right. Notorious RBG to the rescue! Add superhero cape to the judge’s robe!
Follow up: I haven’t ordered my blue pantsuit Hillary action figure yet. Yet. I still wish Lego would get serious and make the Supreme Court Women.
