I wrote this on Facebook as I was falling asleep last night. The election still hadn't been called but the writing was on the wall.
- •In an attempt to survive, a drowning man will fight and grab on to anything, including another person, even if it means dragging the other person down with him, to both of their deaths.
- •Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, you're drowning and you're trying to take us down with you. But it's not going to work.
- •You drag me down seven times, I'll get up eight.

- 1.My mouth is not actually on fire,if I open it, you won't see flames.
- 2.I'm not actually dying,I didn't mean to say that, I'm sorry for scaring you.

I've learned that whenever I see an animal whose name I don't know, I greet them with, "hey, buddy." This was confirmed for me when my daughter started saying, "hey buddy" to every dog, squirrel, and bird in our neighborhood. Here's some of my buddies from my vacation to Colorado.
