I'M too pooped to tea party. And I'm too busy to occupy Wall Street, Sesame Street, your street or my street.
But I do have some complaints. So I decided to have my own occupation.
I worked my occupation into the regular course of the day, so I wouldn't have to take any breaks — except to construct the signs I carried defiantly.
Oh, sure, my signs resulted in some staring and comments — but isn't that the point? How can you change the world if no one notices?
I used white computer paper, Scotch tape and the handle of a toy Styrofoam hammer to create my first protest sign: "I get too much e-mail!"
Then I held my sign aloft with one hand while I clicked delete 612 times through my daily dose of ink jet cartridge deals and Nairobi scam emails.
My next protest was at lunchtime. I've been reading about the changes to the school lunch program. Apparently the school system has cut down on yummy stuff like salt and sugar and replaced those offensive ingredients with healthy substitutes.
This has resulted in breakfasts like "sunbutter banana muffin," lunches like "baked Cajun fish" and side items like "carrot raisin salad and kale greens."
Apparently it has also resulted in hungry chicken-nugget loving kids, cranky school cooks, frustrated parents and lots of food in the trash.
To which I say one thing: "Yum!"
So I held my next sign aloft while I occupied the office microwave. "School food tastes better than my stinky frozen lunches."
Bean soup and corn bread?
Chicken potato smasher?
OK, I don't know what that last one is.
But bring it on! I'm having semi-warm SmartOnes meals every day. I would love to smash a chicken and potato and eat it up.
