.: Her Cause :.
“We must put an end to it!” She declared, while tucking a bit of her long blonde hair back behind her right ear. Yes, she was blonde, but she was smart. That is to say, she considered herself smarter than the average blonde.
“The traffic is ridiculous! The fumes are sickening.” She shouted at the city council members. “And, the increased fines are not fair!”
One afternoon, while driving home from work, she had a vision. Out of nowhere, two signs appeared in front of her. The writing was clear. The message was loud. But the picket signs were cumbersome.
This post was inspired by Oma and his “Employees Must Wash Hands” post.

Very Nice Lenore. 🙂
Wasn’t my best, Arindam. I appreciate your kindness.
No I will not say it’s your best, but it’s different. And you deserve all the appreciation for trying to do something different. 🙂
Oh, so those are protest signs! I get it now.
Seriously. It was way funnier in my head. I’m glad I didn’t perform the thing on stage – I fear what would have been thrown at me. Pumpkins, perhaps.
That’s a pity snort, right Steve? It’s OK. I can take it. Seriously, in my head the story was hilarious and way more obvious.
Love all protest signs and these go to the top of the pile.
The way they wrote the signs make it sound more like a protest than a message the the road work section has ended.
Haha, I thought this was pretty good, Lenore…a creative take on road signs.
Sounds a bit tough on the suspension, too.
