“I have an idea! Watch this!”
Ron bolted up the ladder and started spraying paint on the billboard. I couldn’t see what he was doing from down below and I couldn’t move to have a look either–I had to hold the ladder and keep him safe.
He was giggling to himself the entire time and I couldn’t wait to have a look at his creation. We were competing in the silliness of ideas and I wanted to know what I was up against.
It took him solid five minutes to be done with the spray paint and come climbing down the ladder.
I took a couple steps back and took a good look of his creation.
Blacked out teeth, bunny ears, a set of breasts, and crossed out “un” in “No more unemployment”.
I shrugged. “It’s a try.”
Truth be told, however, as unimaginative as his idea was, it was better than mine. I hadn’t had any to begin with, and with the next election billboard only a couple meters away, I needed to come up with something fast.
