This caption is another storyline that I had roaming around my noggin for quite a while, and I had emailed it to myself a number of months back. Its a basic plot point that some TV shows and movies use as a device .. a boss is retiring or leaving and is finding a replacement. There is usually some sort of contest based on sales or whatever, and the candidates are pitted against each other with every sort of dirty trick, etc .. being played.
After seeing all the shenanigans going on with government and big business, I wanted to turn this plot point on its head. Even now, as I watch all the presidential candidates debating, its amazing how self righteous they all seem to portray themselves. I don't think that anyone in power has a clean sheet, as the higher you rise, the more dirty your laundry tends to be. The person most people think of as the worst president of the last 50 years (I'm discounted Bush Jr because there hasn't been enough time yet to really look back) was Jimmy Carter, who most people would also probably say was the nicest and most virtuous of the presidents of the last half century.
So then, what we have here is a "good guy to good girl" caption, which is somewhat rare to see. The other thing about this caption that is somewhat rare is its one of the 2 percent I write that isn't driven by a picture. I could have used any number of business oriented pictures for the caption and it probably would not have affected the plot much at all. Sammie likes redheads, so that is why I used this particular photo.
On an unrelated note, today is Life Day. so make sure wear your red robe and wave your crystal ball things up high. For those that aren't sure what that means, here is a quick little video to help you out.
HAPPY LIFE DAY!!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: How much of your morals and world views do you bring into your captions? Is it easy to fake a different philosophy when creating for others that don't hold the same values that you do? Have you ever seen the Star Wars Holiday Special?
