The high school sends a daily flyer to parents who subscribe, with information to know, such as what is currently in the lost and found. I find it useful for Laura’s several recurring groups we can’t seem to get on the calendar. Pen Club, GSA, among others. She has a paper from the former going to a national contest. We’ll see.
The following paragraph runs constantly, only the dates and topic change:
The Union of Young Republicans will meet on Wednesday (2/7), at 3:00 p.m. in A-105. We will discuss the 2nd Amendment and other Constitutional Rights. Come learn about traditional Conservative values and viewpoints. All are welcome.
I sat in the kitchen last night, watching Laura make biscuits, then chop veggies for a stew, and asked why there was no opposing Union of Democrats or Independents, Socialists, Communists. Without pausing from scraping biscuit dough from her fingers and cleaning up those utensils for the dishwasher, she launched in.
We have FemForum. We have ASL. We have GSL. Oh, do we have GSL. We have GirlUp. The big new knife she got for Christmas was working through celery and mushrooms, while chicken sizzled. (Note to self: get a Dutch Oven!).
We have the Pen Club and the Writing Club. What else? Oh, the Support Club. We do things. So, what are the Pups talking about this month?
This town is blatantly Republican. The students are, too. I asked Laura how she had come by so many friends. She didn’t know. They just were there. I thought about where they lived, and realized they were in the sliver of my township that’s in the Hudson District, and in old Hudson Township.
Laura asked what that was, where it had been. I explained we went through the city to get to all of her friends, to the outskirts, old Hudson Township that was annexed. Actually, the city fathers tried to name it The Village of Hudson. That didn’t get through the Ohio Legislature. It’s where there are no sidewalks.
What an interesting correlation to look into for a research paper.
