Today was my observation day, tagging along with a field manager to see what canvassing is like. Here are some observations.
1) Most people are nice and don't, you know...support pollution.
2) More people than you'd ever imagine care enough to write letters to their state representatives when they're asked to.
3) Kids are adorable.
4) Dogs are always trying to run outside.
5) Old people really REALLY hate people talking to them about the environment. Like
Is it just me or is this ass way too...short. Like, take your thumb and index fingers and hold them like you're doing that "I'm squishing you!" thing. Now compare that to the rest of her body. Yeah. It's blowing my mind.
Also, I really hope this movie ends up being some sort of crazy mash up of anti-abortionist scare tactics and Eli Roth.
I've figured it out.
Animals become suicidal in my presence--flinging themselves into the path of my car or bike at every opportunity.
So far I have run into and killed two deer, three frogs, hit one bird, and TWO squirrels have jumped into the front wheel of my bike. Thankfully, I have narrowly missed dozens of these creatures, greatly minimizing fatalities. But this is no way to live.
Make it stoooooop.
A FUCKING SQUIRREL JUMPED OUT IN FRONT OF MY BIKE ON THE WAY TO SCHOOL THIS MORNING.
IT GOT IT'S LEG CAUGHT IN MY SPOKES FOR A SPLIT SECOND.
AND THEN IT RAN AWAY LIMPING.
1) Puffs with lotion and Vicks. Undoubtedly god's greatest gift to mankind.
2) Homemade chicken soup. Especially when made by a mother or grandmother just for you.
3) Oversized mens' flannel robes. Usually accompanied by velvety slipper with memory foam.
