Sadness Smorgasbord. Black Lives Matter, and P.S. Sports Team Cuts and Dementia.

Haven't written a list in forever and don't have too many followers, but here goes...

    So this afternoon, I was in the parking lot of my (upscale) grocery store. 🍾🎩🍣
    Stay with me here, but it gets worse before it gets better.

    There was this brand new Range Rover...🏎+🚜
    That I would be too embarrassed to drive, but it was very pretty.
  3. β€’
    And it has a Republican sticker...πŸ™Š
    OK, I was born a Dem but not so much as a very tax-burdened Gen-X-Er, but like most folks, hating this year's election so, OK...Trump is bananas and people are grappling...so I do not sticker judge.

    And then there is this cute doggy sticker...🐢
    I LOVE DOGS!🐾❀️
  5. β€’
    And it has a little face of a black lab and a yellow lab...πŸ‘+πŸ‘πŸΏ
    OK, I am a strictly golden retriever gal (lost my best friend this summer, but that's another list), but I can work w/ the retriever family...

    But then it says, "ALL LABS MATTER."
    Are you shitting me? πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ’© That is not cute, it is obnoxious. BOO! It PISSED ME OFF. I love doggies, but c'mon, doggies are not a whole persecuted group of people who do not deserve to have their movement co-opted and trivialized. By dogs. Damn. This does not help people feel valued and get along. Only in America do we love our dogs more than our humans. 😑

    But if I hadn't read all the li.sts on li.st, I might have not noticed or reacted.
    So thank you, I have re-thought and first-thought a lot of stuff since being on this app. And I was bummed that one of my demographic peers was so cavalier. But I'd like you all to know that there is a blonde, white, middle-aged chick that you might secretly scorn at if you see me in my big, black SUV and sunglasses, but maybe that lady you see is making progress and learning. πŸ‘©πŸΌπŸ•ΆπŸš—

    And also, my kid got cut from a sports team, but I can't write a list about that because that's not my right or my story, but fuck that, too. 😑😒
    And also, we are losing a very close, beloved family to dementia, but also not my story and can't write about that, but fuck dementia. πŸ˜ͺ

    So that's it for now. Thank you for reading. Let's all assume the best of each other and hope for the best and try for the best!
    Love, peeps, love. ❀️❀️❀️
