Lauren’s Day of Fun

January 26, 2008

Journal, Lauren

It was a good Saturday. Several good things happened, but I won’t go on about all of them because I need some post material for later days.

The day began with another Ron Paul sign-waving party south of Lincoln. This time was much more pleasant than last, because the sun was shining, hardly any wind was blowing, and it was about 10 – 20 degrees warmer. Plus, the shopping was right behind us! (We were on the corner by a major outdoor shopping mall.)

Lots of people honked, and very few gave us the finger. We had about 10 – 12 supporters, and once again – nobody asked me any serious political questions. Whew!

Lloyd looks rapturous, but his eyes are just closed for the picture.

Come for me, Ron Paul!  Take the faithful!

I’m sure you noticed our not-yet-of-voting-age supporter. Her name is also Lauren! She was pretty funny, and I’m sure was the source of most of the friendly honks. She grew tired of holding her sign, so I rigged up a sandwich-board for her. How cute is she?

Vote for my future!

As the time wore on, she used the signs for a sled on the little hill behind us. Smart girl.

    You should just memorize some hopelessly complicated monologue about economic policy. Then when people ask you a political question, you can scare them away.

    Note to self: everyone is tired of pointing out how weird Lloyd is with the Ron Paul stuff.
