In my next life I think I will sign up to be a campaign manager.
My 3rd grader, Logan, and one of his best friends, Riki, got nominated by their class to run for their school’s Vice President and Treasurer positions. We decided to combine their campaigns. I’m pretty sure they are going to win. Because of these faces right here:
And these sassy attitudes:
And these adorable little people who are rooting for them but don’t have any idea what is actually going on… (Note Charlie’s ear trick in action. We don’t tell him to do this all day. It’s “standard operating procedure”. The ear is sure to win votes! Yes?):
How could the ladies not vote for this?
Logan’s speech will probably go something like this:
“I think you should vote for me because I’m nice and I have good ideas. If you elect me to be your Vice President I promise to be nice and have good ideas. So vote for me! Thank you.”
The truth of the matter is that’s it probaby doesn’t matter what the heck the kid says in his speech. DID YOU SEE HIS POSTERS?!
p.s. I used a site called ipiccy.com to make these posters into 8×10 photos and printed them at Walgreens. I’m pretty sure the Walgreens Photo tech thinks I’m “the boss.” I send him the coolest things to print at the crack of dawn, call him as the store opens to tell him to “Hurry it up, I’m on my way!” and then run into the store in my jammies to pick up my genius creations hot off the presses before shuttling my little candidates off to school. Again, in the next life I am signing up to be a campaign manager. I carry myself in such a calculated, dignified, professional manager that I would make a great asset to any team.
p.p.s. The trick to getting high quality “posters” was to ensure the photos were about 2048 x 1536 pixels in size (for 8 x 10 photos). I am using ipiccy and picmonkey to edit my photos these days. Apparently the world did not come to an end when picnik died. RIP.
p.p.s. Can Logan and I count on your votes? What hot button issues can we fight for on your behalf?
