It's Funny Friday! The January 17, 2014 prompt for "30-Day Blogging Challenge" is
Write about a silly impulse buy that you only regretted after bringing it home. What made you think it was a good idea?
Lately, my silly impulses have concerned good in the middle of the night, which is a time I'm not willing to get dressed and drive to a restaurant or store. Thinking back over the past several years about purchase, I've had a lot of silly impulse to purchase stuff, but at the time I didn't have the money so I couldn't buy anything that I would regret later (there are advantages to being low on cash with a lot of debt).
The only silly impulse I can remember is the time I had a political campaign poster put up in our yard when I was living with my mother and stepfather in Shawnee, Oklahoma. I know it was a politician they back (and therefore the rest of the immediate family had to back), but I can't remember the person's name or whether it was a local or national election. Anyway, the sign was put up and the next morning he took it out when he was backing his pickup out of the yard. At the time (because of his reaction), it wasn't funny, but think back over the incident I find it amusing and revealing. I don't put up political posters any more, all though, I do find most political campaign ads either amusing, tear worthy, or down right hilarious. In fact, sometimes I laugh so hard at the campaign ads I cry.
Now on to something that's more important then political ads and silly impulses, which is Earth Day 2014 and the Earth Day Neworks1 2014 campaign. This year's campaign is Green Cities2, which focuses on using renewable energy to power our cities and businesses.
