And Lordy, Lordy! I’ve heard that there’s going to be an anti-mask rally in Halifax. What!? An anti-mask rally!?
What’s with them? It’s not just about the mask wearer, is it? Isn’t it about the people who can catch your god-awful virus if you’re carrying it around in your totally-unrestrained-right-to-do-whatever-you-feel-is-good-for- yourself body?
I would say this fella would attend anti-environmentally-responsible-tree-cutting rallies.
I answered his question. I said I could see some advantages to clear-cutting. It might be commercially more viable. That would be related to King Money. I didn’t think it was good for all the plants and animals that it was driving away or destroying. I’m sure he left us thinking that we were rubber booters. We actually have two pair of rubber boots and Sue wears hers all the time.
He would probably attend an anti-being-only-called-a-dog rally.
I could go on.
