I've been tagged by Lisita. The directions are as follows:
1. Go into your archive.
2. Find your 23rd Post.
3. Find the 5th sentence of that post.
4. Post text of that sentence with these instructions.
5. Tag 5 other people to do the same:
I'm disappointed in the Democratic party because they laid down after 9/11 and let Bush have full reins.
I'm going to be rebellious and not tag five people. Like I told Lisita, I hate these things. It seems I always have something lame in my archives. On top of that, it has the feeling of a chain letter. You know it's not a big deal if you don't do it, but there's a certain innate guilt for not doing it and being a wet noodle on someone else's fun and games. As such, if you want to do it - do it. You have been tagged!
However, I found it quite ironic that I landed on that sentence. I received a phone call yesterday from the local Democratic party. It's my second one this week. The first one was a call requesting a financial donation. I told them as much as I appreciate their need and efforts, now was not a good time for me. So, when I received a second call yesterday, I was a bit impatient and cut the woman off, telling her I already received a call earlier in the week and I can't afford to make a donation at this time. As I munched on my foot, she informed me that wasn't why she was calling. She was calling to see if I would consider volunteering since we have a "special" election in November. As interested in politics as I am, you would think I was more involved in the process. I've wanted to be and thought of it many times but never really acted on it beyond getting my butt to the poll and voting. So, I decided to give it a shot. Heck, maybe it'll be the start of a political career. Just maybe, I could be the first woman president. Hmmm....would I have to say I didn't inhale, or instead of snorting I actually blew? "Madame President" - damn that sounds good!
