Words can hurt, but words also lead to great change. Words are all we've got. Use them wisely!
And somehow the world continues to spin on its axis. The U.S.A. is made of tough stuff. I was hoping that Gary Johnson would get 5 percent of the vote, as that would guarantee a spot on the ballot for the Libertarian Party in all 50 states (they achieve that every year, but do it the hard way, with petitions, etc ..) and federal matching funds for campaigns. Still did well though, getting almost 4.5 million votes. So other than me possibly losing my health insurance when Trump repeals Obamacare in January, life continues to go on!
Made this caption for Kaitlyn back over a month ago! Wow! Surprised I hadn't posted it before then. I remember seeing the picture and with the arrangement of letters, the story and zinger came to be pretty quickly, though I only put it into a caption setting at the time, and didn't actually write it until a few weeks later when I had the chance to work it out as cleverly as possible. The hard part was not making the rules seem boring and just not listing them, but integrating them into the story as it unfolds. It always feels weird when I describe changes in appearance that you can see in the photo, but this time it worked to my advantage when the article of clothing IS the treasure map, so to speak!
Kaitlyn noticed something else about the photo. "X may mark the spot, but I've noticed there was a 'G' right next to it. I guess you could call that the ... spot where the G is?" Glad she studied the picture of herself changing very thoroughly!
Tomorrow is Veteran's Day here in the States, and possibly Armistice Day elsewhere? It's almost been 100 years since that first world war, and almost 70+ years since the end of the last one. Let's hope the world leader's can keep their wits about them and steer this globe into an unprecedented time of prosperity and social well being. Or they will all show how big their dicks are and fuck things up like every other eon of civilization. Mazel tov!
If anyone would actually like to talk about the election civilly, you are more than welcome to do so in the comments, or just talk about the caption if it so pleases you. I'll try to answer every comment if it will stir conversations too!
Just found out that Leonard Cohen died. Ok 2016, I get it. You've broken me! Let's get to 2017!
