last week was loads of fun. i attended a number of republican women’s meetings throughout brazoria and galveston county, participated in a shrimp eating contest in texas city (judge yarbrough soundly defeated me AND shelly’s campaign manager), met a number of elected officials, and made a few new friends.
people often focus on the negative side of politics, but it is really loads of fun. occasionally people are rude or downright mean, and sometimes you endure a dirty trick or two, but the people you meet and the things you learn far outweigh any negative aspects of the business. also, many people choose to live lives that are so incredibly safe that they don’t learn what to truly fear until it is too late.
have a great week everyone. go melroy! go discovery!
