I’m still feeling super, super low, so I decided to go on a Little outing. I walked to Michaels and got some stickers, and then to Target, where I got one of their last two Bluey plushies. I really, desperately needed something new to hug that wasn’t expensive.
It was very hot outside, almost unbearably so, but the walk did me good all the same. I met a squirrel on the way, who really stared me down…
Here’s my Bluey plush that I got to cheer myself up:
Later, I did some more scrapbooking. Bluey made sure the colors were harmonious.
I did work on art in the afternoon though, so I promise it wasn’t a day without commission work.
Never in a million years did I think I’d wear something this crass… I hate the whole “Merica!!” or “Murica” meme/misspelling, most of all when I see/hear people saying it unironically, not realizing that the way in which it is said is to mock blind patriotism without a thought for the actual wellbeing of our country (or just as a bad stereotype… see Urban Dictionary.) But… But… It has a squirrel wearing patriotic glasses… with their lil tongue hanging out all cheeky-like…
So… I’m gonna wear it when we go out to dinner on the 21st… ironically! Well. The rednecky/murica part is ironic on my end. My patriotism isn’t. I’m bursting, dripping with patriotism, but only now do I feel like I have (or will soon have) a proper right to express it. 😁
I’ve waited so long to say “my country” about the USA… 🥺💖🤍💙
Anyway yeah. This is dumb. But I’ll wear it because squirrel. And America! With an A, dammit.
