Yesterday’s bog post didn’t get posted because it was written on scrap paper, transferred to note paper, and then transcribed to Word format and printed out. I also didn’t write it, I was more of an executive producer. The product? A campaign speech.
It’s student council election time. #4 is running for President. I had no idea he was interested in local politics. He didn’t either but then when they were talking about it at school he realized that he’s been going there for a long time – it’s his school – and it was time to get involved.
That’s my kind of lurker. Not someone who just jumps in and says, “This Is broken, fix it this way” (you know, like I do) but someone who takes a little while to get a feel for the institution and then duty compels him to get involved (the way I try to be).
It was a good speech. He won the primary. The big election is in a couple of weeks. We’ll need 3 posters. With glitter and flashing lights. Or those funky eyeballs that sort of follow you around.
I also watched a volleyball game last night. When was the last time you watched a volleyball game? Holy cow, Batman. Talk about exciting. I am going to write a volleyball movie. Seriously. It’s the next one after the one I do when I finish the one I’m working on. Maybe the one before that.
I am not going to write a baseball movie. I actually yawned typing that.
