I will admit I was slow on the uptake with them. The last day or so in my free time they are all I can watch.
Let me explain ...
It was 1989. I was going to a large, maybe 17,000 person state college. I was nominated for Home Coming King by this panel of teachers. Now I had almost a 4.0. I did a lot of community work. But most days I was partying my balls to the wall. You can do all those things BTW.
I am just so happy we didn't have cell phones cameras at that time, cause well ......
Follow me below the fold for some more thoughts.
So my first campaign to be "king."
Who what we did.
Long steel fence in front of where I lived, we used styrofoam cups to promote events (yeah, not so good).
If you came to the event you had to say, "Tommy is King, Tommy is King, Tommy is King" and then hold up three fingers. There is a third or III after my name. You got a free beer.
I won running away .....
But my point if not clear is we had fun with this. I mean we were sitting around a bong wondering how to influence people. There were buttons on campus saying "Say It Three Times." Neat stuff.
I can't even imagine if we had YouTube and other stuff to play with what we would have done.
I might be 43, but this is a darn neat time we live in. Have fun folks! Play. Get adventurous. You are only young once.
